John Johnsen of Rockwood recently noticed a very ornate addition to one of his rose bushes.
The 92-year-old long-time flowering plant aficionado notified the Roane County News that a singular Rose of Sharon was growing up through one of his vibrant knock-out rosebushes.
“To me, it was very unusual,” Johnsen said. “I have never seen anything like it before in my life. One day it was not there, the next, there is was,” he added.
