I finally found out today the Korean name for the Rose Of Sharon plant. Mugunghwa is the national flower for Korea and is a common gift in Korean weddings. Also known as "Rose of Althea" this plant can survive hot temperatures and has beautiful white, pink, red, lavender, or purple flowers. Of course if you follow my sites you know that I sell these seeds all year round. This particular shot above was taken in my backyard just last summer....
