White with red center
Crimson-eyed rose mallow
Check out this link. It doesn't have any pics with the article but it describes the differences between the two species. The bloom size and leaf size seems to be the biggest difference between the two, the rose of sharon having smaller blooms and leaves than the rose mallow. http://www.ehow.com/info_8344777_differe...
There are no ponds near this plant.
Julie is this plant around moist or small ponds..?
Alice this is not Rose of Sharon...Its America's own Rose mallow
Rose of Sharon is what I remember as a child.
