Basically,it’s about 7 or 8 foot tall. Mainly like a single branch sampling tree with just a few blooms on top…My dad planted the about 30+ years ago but don’t remember what they are called. I’m not sure if they bloom every year or not,but this is the first time I’ve saw them as pretty as this. Also has kind of like a vine growing up the side of it,but i’m not sure if thats just a weed like ivy or not..

    Could it possibly be a “Rose of Sharon Blossums”?

    Looks like a Rose of Sharon planted in the shade. They need Sunlight.

    Yes, it’s a Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus). Looks like it is in a wooded area. In my experience, they bloom best in full sun or some shade, but not in a lot of shade. They will be thicker and bushier, too. in full sun even though they are naturally vase shaped with more foliage on the top than on the bottom.

    I have several of these that have come up voluntarily on my creek bank. I leave them there since they do have such pretty blooms. They are Rose of Sharon and will have pink, white, or purple blooms.

    Thanks folks…I’m pretty sure thats what it is also…I had to find out and made a post on Facebook about it,and sure enough,a great friend of mines mom posted the name on there…So,I looked it up and decided that most likely thats what it is…Dad planted these in the edge of the yard about 35 years ago and he though they died…But of course back then,they got plenty of sun but in the last 30 years,everything has just grown up way too brushy around them…Thanks for your input.
