I believe that the blossom in my Standout piece is rose of Sharon.  When facing west, this tree is to the right of the purple rose of Sharon (the same one that produced the bud in front of a bloom from a previous post) next to the wall in the Aiken County Historical Museum.  I’ve noticed that they have comparable blooming schedules and their flowers have similar designs.  This bloom was positioned by itself with lots of space around it and, more importantly, behind it (the background was clean all the way across Laurens Street to the trees on the other side).  The high level of detail allows surface textures to be seen.
