Wordless Wednesday: Purple Rose of Sharon at Sunset

Purple Hibiscus
"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman,
I shall feel that I have worked with God."

- Gilbert K. Chesterton

  10. I have several in my yard, some I've tried to kill off and it is near impossible. Did you know that they propagate easier than any shrub I've known? Cut the ends, put in a big vase of water and you'll have roots shooting off the bark in about a week's time. Sorry for the long ramble :) I love the color on that one!

  17. I have a white one that is just beginning to bloom. Have never seen a purple. It is absolutely beautiful.
    Thanks to BusyWorkingMama, I was wondering if I could propagate it. Now I know:) The thing one learns blogging:)
