This isn't a very good photo, a big out of focus green bush with pink blooms. Could you also provide a closeup of the leaves and flowers please?

It's a little fuzzy and hard to tell, but my first thought is Rose of Sharon.

I agree, looks like Rose of Sharon. Can you post a closer picture?

I think it is a Rose of Sharon or Althea also. Does the bloom look like this?

I believe it may be a magnolia variety with pinkish bloom. Hopefully these will unlock my mystery:


Here is the leaf -

That does look like an Japanese magnolia or "saucer" magnolia leaf. I have several in my yard that I have trained to grow as single-trunk trees.

But usually the flowers bloom before the leaves come out, although I have one that always has a few flowers on it after the others fall off and it is fully leafed out.

Does the flower look like this?

Okay, I am getting confused by looking at photos and not seeing who is posting them! Magnolias would have bloomed already, wouldn't they? OP, where are you located?
