Notes:

Friend gave me two of these in same pot in May. Dug them up from their home place. Said they were Cottonwood trees. I think NOT. One is planted in ground near small lake… thriving, not blooming. Both increasing in size quickly. The bloomer remains in pot. Now it is about 6 feet tall, leggy and full of buds. Blooms are the size of my hand and are beautiful. Should I keep them together? Is it a he/she thing?

    Lisa is right – it is in the hibiscus family. some are white in the morning, light pink during the day and dark pink at night! I cut mine back to about 2 feet in the winter.

    Looks like what is called Confederate rose, though I doubt it is actually related to a true rose. I have seen them grow quite large in a warm, sheltered location. A shame that they are usually in full bloom right when we get our first frost, and amazing that they die back each winter and put on all that growth in a single growing season.
