Hibiscus syriacus cultivars 2

'E's not dead yet!

When I first visited the Reeves-Reed Arboretum, it was early March, and there was still snow on the ground. There were very few things to take pictures of. (I dunno, it was an arboretum, I thought there’d be trees. And in my defense, the snow had melted everywhere else.)

But ONE thing I photographed was a Rose of Sharon, or shrub althea, or Hibiscus syriacus cultivars.

The above photo is what Rose of Sharon seeds look like BEFORE they get all dry and dead-looking.

…One of these years, I will get myself to the arboretum when these flowers are actually in bloom.
