{Our Pink Hibiscus Syriacus 'Aphrodite' - Aphrodite Rose of Sharon}

Our Single Pink Hibiscus Syriacus 'Aphrodite' - Aphrodite Rose of Sharon is one of the many varieties we have in our garden. It is amazing that in the heat of summer, these do very well. They bloom the entire summer long!

For the top photo I used the flash, so you would have a clear view of the center part.
That's where butterflies and hummingbirds feast, as well as bees.

The center one shows a bee inside, snacking on the pollen...

  1. Dear Mariette,

    The pink Hibiscus is so pretty and yes, they do thrive in hot weather.
    So nice to have plants, so the bees and birds to can get nectar from.

    Happy new week

  2. Liebe Mariette,

    du bist ja eine ganz eifrige
    Bloggerin hier.
    Deine Fotos sind einmalig schön.

    Frohe Grüße
    Angela und Elisabeth

  3. ..le meraviglie della natura ci stupiscono sempre!!!! Baci,Anna.

  4. Hallo Mariette,
    ich liebe diese Hibiskus-Vertreter. Sie sind so ausdauernd und ertragen Hitze, Kälte und Trockenheit und blühen unermüdlich. Und wie du schon schreibst, sie sind eine richtige Bienen- und Hummelweide. Ich habe mir einen blaublühenden Strauch gekauft. Bei uns werden jetzt im Gartencenter großblühende Hibiscus moscheutos angeboten. Die sehen auch toll aus, aber ich weiß nicht, ob die für unser Klima günstig sind.
    Die H. syriakus-Vertreter sind es jedenfalls.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  5. meraviglioso!!!!!!!!!!! buona settimana e un abbraccio lory

  18. Hello my dear friend Mariette:
    Some weeks ago, I wanted to write you and ask you about a very nice flower that we have in our garden, nobody planted it, it just came by itself. Since nobody knows about it, I thought that maybe you could help me to find out to identify it. And turns out that this is it!!!!! Aphrodite Rose of Sharon !!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I'm so happy you posted this and now I know the name. Thank you very much!

    I send you a big hug my sweet friend

    Laura =)
