Northwest PA Tree/Shrub ID

I have a camp in Tionesta and have noticed a lot of places have 2 types of flowereing trees/shrubs.

they seem to have been blooming all summer.

1st one is tree like 8'-12' tall and has purlpleish flowers
2nd on is about 8'-10' tall and a little more shrub like. The flowers are white and look almost like a ball.

They were common until about Frankin PA and then I would not see any more.

What are they?

I would like to purchase some. Will they grow in SW PA?

Thanks,

Rick

I think the purple one might be a "Rose of Sharon", they have purple or white flowers.

The second one, I'm a bit stumped.

The second one most likely is a hydrangea.

Re: Northwest PA Tree/Shrub ID

Thanks guys. I looked them up and it appears to be them. I will be planting them in the spring. Not sure why they are not more popular here.

Maybe they just bloom later.

Thanks again!
