Bush that has lost all leaves & gone to seed...

It's a bush - well established - probably about 4-5 feet tall. Bunch of seeds in the pod.

Curious as to what it is...

thanks!

Perhaps a type of Hibiscus.

if its what they say it is..

those seed pods.. are why many peeps simple destroy the plants.. and get rid of them..

because once they start seeding freely.. they will be sprouting ALL over the garden ...

Yes thank you! I did a google image search for "rose of sharon seed pods" and the photos matched perfectly.

The bush has been doing it's think in an abandoned yard for 12+ years and only 2 bushes established. They may have been the ones originally planted.

Again - thanks so much!!
