Hibiscus syriacus is a species of flowering plant in the family Malvaceae, native to much of Asia. Common names include Rose of Sharon (especially in North America), Rose mallow (United Kingdom) and St Joseph's rod (Italy).
H. syriacus is a hardy deciduous shrub. It is upright and vase-shaped, reaching 2–4 m height, bearing large trumpet-shaped dark pink flowers with prominent yellow-tipped white stamens. Individual flowers are short-lived, lasting only a day. However, numerous buds are produced on the shrub's new growth, which provides prolific flowering over a long summer blooming period. Shoots make interesting indoor vase cuttings, as they stay green for a long time. In the vase some new flowers may open from the more mature buds. The species has naturalized very well in many suburban areas, and might even be termed slightly invasive, so frequently does it seed around.
Hibiscus syriacus has been a garden shrub in Korea since time immemorial, its leaves were brewed for a tisane and its flowers are eaten. It was grown in Europe from the 16th century. Though it has no autumn color and can be stiff and ungainly if badly pruned, H. syriacus remains a popular ornamental shrub today, with many cultivars. Cultivars of H. syriacus are widely planted in areas with hot summers for their very attractive white, pink, red, lavender, or purple large and edible flowers.
Hibiscus syriacus is fairly easily propagated from either seeds, with variable results (color), or by layering or cuttings, cloning the original.

Hibiscus s. is the national flower of South Korea. The flower appears in national emblems, and Korea is compared poetically to the flower in the South Korean national anthem. The flower's symbolic significance stems from the Korean word mugung, which means "eternity".
