Rose of sharon

The favorite variety was the first to open: white, with a crimson center. The storm didn't bother them at all, surprisingly, even though the branches are so brittle. A recently acquired factoid is that this is the national flower of South Korea. The ones that have sprung up from seed have yet to reveal what color flowers they will bear. The only one that never reproduced, and is now gone as are all the other ones that used to be nearby, was the extremely doubled pink one that looked exactly like a Kleenex carnation.
