Q.I have a 3 year old Rose of Sharon. In the past it budded and flowered regularly. This year for some reason it JUST started show
leaves, no buds yet. (Aug) Just wonder is this normal or will it die in winter? Should I be concerned, as it did wonderful in past.

It is very likely that it has run out of fertilizer. This should be done several times per year to keep it blooming properly. They are heavy feeders. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rose-of-sharon/rose-of-sharon-not-blooming.htm
