Hibiscus syriacus is commonly known as Rose of Sharon in the US. Apparently, we are the only ones who call this bush/tree by that name. When my current next door neighbor moved in to her house, I told her it was a weed but she loves the flowers and has trained it to grow as a tree. I have to admit, I too enjoy the flowers every year.
