Notes:

blooms late summer, was started from rooted stem, huge leaves, has white and varied pink flowers on same stems, blooms on new growth each year.

We cut it back to about two feet each year after it drops leaves and is bare. It has grown to over twenty feet this year.

    Looks like a fancy double version of a rose mallow/hardy hibiscus. I have some in white, light pink, mauve, and red and the leaves and buds look spot-on with what you have there.

    Is it a tree? Might be a hibiscus plant that became popular in the south after the civil war. No one could afford roses then. This tree grows easily from a cutting and became known as a ‘Confederate Rose’ in the southern states where if grows best.

    Thank you. I looked up the Confederate Rose and that is it exactly. It is on the south side of our house and is over 20 feet tall this year.

    They love sun and water… we planted a stick one year and in no time it was a large tree. Beautiful in the fall. See a lot of them as we travel from south Georgia to north Georgia—Confederate Territory. :-)
