National Flower of Korea

Rose of Sharon is the Korea's national flower. Rose of Sharon blooms for about 100 days from early July to late October. Koreans have loved the rose of Sharon for centuries. Its botanical name is Hibiscus Syriacus. The rose of Sharon blooms from early July through late October. Some 2,000 to 3,000 bloom on a single plant, which is strong enough to survive even when it is transplanted or cut for decoration or flower arrangements. Thus, the flower represents the wish for lasting national development and prosperity. Koreans cherish and care for the national flower as it symbolizes the many glories the country has experienced and the trials and tribulations the people have overcome. here are some photos; are you familiar with this?
