Flower of the Day, Rose of Sharon

I’ve always loved rose of Sharon. A member of the hibiscus family, it’s blossoms don’t get as large as some hibiscus, but they are beautiful, with subtle variations in color and hue. Here’s an example of a few from my yard that caught my attention.

White blossom with red center.
A closer look
Here we have a very dark blossom
How about this blossom that appears to be an intermediate color between the first two photos.
Look at this show-off with double blossoms.
