My rose of sharon has a chunk bitten out of her. It looks like maybe a deer tried to take a bite out of it doing the winter. The bite is under the main branches. Thanks.
I started a rose of sharon last year. I need to know what to do for it. Trim it back, etc.
We planted three rose of sharon bushes/trees last fall. They did have some leaves and a few blooms on them. We had an extremely dry winter. We did water a bit. It is now past the middle of May, and we still don’t have any buds on them. We don’t think they are dead, as they are still limber. When should we be seeing leaves budding?
We have trees around us that have branches with no leaves. The leaves on other branches are wilting and falling off. We have had a lot of rain. It is now hot and muggy out. We have two bushes of rose of sharon. One is doing well and the other one close to the bad tree is small and not doing well. What could be wrong?
I have a rose of sharon hibiscus which is growing without form. Tell me how to remedy this problem and the proper way to prune. Thanks. . . . Fae Bierig
I live in Wisconsin and have a Rose of Sharon bush. I would like guidance with fertilizing this 8 ft. bush. Due to half of the multi-stemmed bush dying, I have trimmed it to half its width or about 4 ft.
When is the right time to prune a Rose of Sharon standard?
