    Hello:

    Does anyone know what these 3 are? I think the first may be a purple Rose of Sharon; it was from a tall shrub in my former home in West Van, taken September 07. The second I took last summer in the Okanagan; they were small flowers on a low-lying border plant. The last one I took this past July in a local community garden; if I recall correctly the plant was tiny, perhaps 12-15" high. Any help appreciated.

    I don't recognize #1. #2 is a Gazania and #3 is a Campanula but I don't know which species.

    Isn't Rose of Sharon the common name for Hibiscus syriacus? I have a photo of a white Rose of Sharon, which I was told is an Hibiscus syriacus. So would this purple one be Hibicus syriacus but its common varietal name unknown?
