The Daily Hex: Rose of Sharon


Explore your garden or the nearest park, today’s The Daily Hex might be there!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?
Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

Aside from being a color name, Rose of Sharon is also a small ornamental plant most commonly referred to as hibiscus. It comes in many colors like violet, yellow, and red. The Rose of Sharon flower can also have vibrant orange color just like these photos:
