Q.Buds On Rose Of Sharon Bush That Never Opened

Zone Greenwood, Indiana 46143 | Anonymous added on November 2, 2022 | Answered

I just planted a Rose of Sharon bush this spring and it bloomed a lot but there are lots of buds on it still. Now that winter is coming, should I cut off buds that never opened, or should I wait and trim back in early spring? Will the buds steal the energy that should be going to the roots if I leave them on until spring?

Environmental conditions are not favorable for blooming. This can be due to plant health, too much shade or pests. Check for aphids for example. Aphids will cause the buds to rot and fail to open.
