As a duly unlicensed investigator I must bring to your attention a vast and pervasive fraud that is being perpetrated by the Worldwide Plant Police.

In order to get this important information to you I hope to avoid clandestine censorship authorities by not expounding upon any personal beliefs. I sincerely believe you will arrive at the same conclusion at which I have arrived.

That conclusion simply stated is "There is a Rose of Sharon identity theft taking place by another foreign invader from Southeast Asia."

After reviewing the evidence I should hope that a grass-roots movement will arise to facilitate correct labeling in our public discourse.

Kentucky Color: Rose of Sharon, indeed!

2011-07-09 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester.
"The Old Time, Great Wooded South, Rose of Sharon," writes Billy Joe Fudge of the flower on the left. He is outraged however, about an imposter, on the right "Hibiscus Syriacus. According to Wikipedia, it is the national flower of South Korea, the thief that has stolen the identity of the real Rose of Sharon." See for yourself, Wikipedia: Rose of Sharon
