Hollyhocks species can be divided into annual, biennial, and some are perennial.
Rose of Sharon are large shrubs, to small trees with a woody trunk and branches.
All are related to hibiscus which can also be annual and perennial (I haven't seen any that are biennial but I'm sure there are some non-discript species that are)!
They also can be woody like the Rose of Sharon except that thy are tropical..

...I'm not trying to confuse you....
All of them have the same characteristic flowers (and genome)!
Genetically they are very close to one another, like first and second cousins!!:banana-wa

NO confused That is what I have benn reading!
You just clarified it in less words*lol

Thank you Ron!
I'll just wait for mine to branch out cause they sure didnt this past season.
When should I transplant them if they branch out in 2006 season? Should I do it in the fall of 2006 or wait till Spring of 2007?

Thank you very much.:banana-wa
