I need a tree ID too!

My son just moved into a house in Cambridge, Ontario, this beautiful tree was in full bloom, but I have no idea what it is, can anyone help?

I think that's a Rose of Sharon.

Thank you so much! I had no idea these trees were so pretty. I have passed this info on to my son.

I third it! I have 5 on my property. However tell your son he'll need to deadhead the blooms or once the tree has stopped blooming, remove all the seed heads. I failed to do this last fall and I have thousands of mini rose of Sharons growing in my lawn and around the base of the trees!

Tara,

You are so right! I will have to do that this year as well, because we are in the same boat. They are a tree that really wants to propagate its gene pool!

So noted! Thank you again, my son is 25 and gardening is definately not something he has ever had to deal with, I think just cutting the grass was a shock!
