Q.I have a Rose of Sharon I recieved from my mom,I planted it 2 yrs ago and the branches are growing out then bending downwards
It has not grown any taller and it looks like a weeping willow almost has the branches come out start to go up and then they been back down and really not flowering that much is it possible I don’t have it deep enough. Is it possible to cut it back would that make the new branches go up and out desperate for help to save my mom’s shrub if she is no longer with me

This can happen as a shrub ages. Fortunately, this one is very forgiving to extreme pruning. In fact, it will likely help to restore this to a better flowering condition.
