Remarks:
My confederate rose opens white in the morning, gradually gets pinker all day until finally turning a dark rose. (Photo taken late in the day - about 4 pm). The leaves are attractive, but wilt on hot days. Also, caterpillars find the leaves irresistable. Despite these small aggravations, it is one of my favorite plants - easy to grow, fun to watch and a real beauty.
