Rose of Sharon

This plant flowered for the first time since we bought the house, the flower is huge!! It looks like a hibiscus, but the leaves are different and the flower is about twice the size of a regular hibiscus. I asked on Facebook and folks said it might be a Rose of Sharon (a different type of hibiscus). Pretty cool! (Sorry my hand is blue, it’s the photo, I’m not really dead!)
