Hibiscus syriacus

[Hybiscus seriacus]

The name of this widely cultivated ornamental shrub implies that it has originated from Syria but it’s actually native to East Asia. South Koreans call it “immortal flower” and even consider it their national flower. No matter whether it’s from Syria or East Asia, it beautifies our garden every year and provides opportunities for photography.
