Hi Tina,

Thanks for the kind words.  I've never heard it pronounced that way.  My 
wife and I, who grew up in Mississippi, usually use the other name, Althea, 
but I think Rose of Sharon imparts more dignity.  ;-)

These plants came from those that were growing where we grew up, but the 
colors have mutated over the years.
