Unknown beauty ~

Starting to open up...

In full bloom.

I honestly do not know what the name of these lovely purple flowers are. They  grow on a small tree...anyone have an idea? 


  1. This looks a little like my Rose of Sharon Bush/Tree. Mine doesn't bloom until June here in Tennessee. You might want to check out this web site to see if you think it could be a Rose of Sharon, http://www.rose-gardening-made-easy.com/rose-of-sharon-bush.html
    Beautiful flower!

  2. Harriet ~ I think you are correct...thank you for the info...slowly but surely, I will learn the names of all the flowers in the neighborhood! It's a nice way to figure out which ones I would like to plant in my yard.
