Mystery Flower in our yard

Amy noticed this one blooming along the edge of our yard, so I grabbed the camera for closer inspection.  I have no idea what kind of flower it is.  Can anyone identify this bloom?  It is a fairly large bloom of about 5" in diameter.  The first shot shows both the flower and the leaves.

With the Macro Lens, I went if for an even closer look

I believe it's a Rose of Sharon, a hardy hibiscus that can become a fairly tall shrub with lot's of blooms. It sheds its leaves in the winter.
