If you love wild flowers, don’t miss seeing the hibiscus in bloom at the stage at historic Prater’s Mill. The plant is a tall bush with large white to pink blooms that last only a day. The common name of this particular hibiscus is Rose of Sharon.
Flowers begin to appear in late July. Once they start blooming, the hardy hibiscus will keep blooming until a killing frost in the fall.
Historic Prater’s Mill is at 5845 Ga. Highway 2, 10 miles north of Dalton. The stage is on the north side of the property. The site is open to the public free during daylight hours.
