My daughter gave me a double bloom Rose of Sharon many years ago. When I moved from VA to NC, I cut it way back and took it with me. It grew and just flourished. When I knew I was moving back to VA,, I cut it back and dug it up and potted it for the move. Later I found a really small one (about 4") coming up from the original place in NC. I potted that one too. We didn't sell our house for two years and we took the potted plants to someone's house until we were actually moved. The larger one died and I was just so sad. However, I still had a piece from the original plant and when we moved into our house last year, I planted it. Here is a photo of how much it has grown in one year and yes, it still it a double bloom.. See how the flower is ruffled instead of flat? I cherish that because my daughter gave it to me. It was meant to be...it really looks like a rose.
Thank you Carla....I love you.....Mom
