    It appears to me to be Rose-of-Sharon (Hybiscus syriacus). We have it around here in pink and white, and someone else on here posted a photo in the past couple of days of a Hybiscus that looks very similar, only it was blue.

    Agree...the name finally came to me after I'd titled it and sent it up to Photobucket.
    I also have the small blue-ish / purple ones, but these are huge...a good 6"-7" across...beautiful flowers !

    My mistake on the id . . . it is indeed a Hibiscus, but much larger than Rose-of-Sharon. I saw some in a neighbor's yard yesterday afternoon.
