I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and decided to begin sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
Last time I shared Hibiscus (non-tropical). Here are other 2019 shares:
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- Tiger Lily
- The Zinnia and the Swallowtail
- Wax Begonia
- Mountain Mint
- Spring Blooms
- One Beautiful…One Interesting
- Persian Carpet Zinnia
More Hibiscus (non-tropical)
On an outing with the kids yesterday, I came across some interesting Hibiscus, including these two rose of Sharon types…
I’d really love to get a few of these rather tall shrub-like hibiscus. The flowers aren’t as big, but the colors are so beautiful.
These are all hardy: able to be grown as far north as zone 4.
- Also known as: Rosemallow
- Scientific name: Hibiscus
- Family: Malvaceae
- Order: Malvales
Now on to the mystery flower I found on said outing. Could this be Oakleaf Hydrangea?
The leaves remind me of oak trees and the flowers of hydrangeas. What do you think?
Thanks for checking out Flower Friday. Let me know what flowers you’re enjoying right now and of you’re growing any Hibiscus. Have a great weekend everyone!
