It is Rose of Sharon. Half of my back fence is covered with this. It is really pretty..

It'll cover anyone's whole back yard quickly too. Lots and lots and lots of little seedlings come up every year. If you don't want a whole grove of them you need to pull the seedlings. Or mow REAL close. ;-)

The downside of this plant is that, left unchecked, it will continue to spread and is difficult to eliminate.

We cut ours back pretty hard last Fall and it never leafed out with new growth this Spring.
