We have an unidentified green shrub with single white blooms approximately 4″ across, a fuchsia center and a large single stigma. The leaves on the shrub are a dark green. I believe the deer are eating the flowers as there is only one left and that was on the ground.

    Looks like Rose of Sharon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_syriacus

    I agree. Definitely rose of Sharon. A hybrid of the hibiscus.
