I have about ten rose of Sharon bushes in my yard. One has recently dies fairly quick and the other are showing signs of dead branches and black moldy looking spots on the branches. The leaves are just starting to bud but the overall health of he tree looks poor. He dead one was able to be pulled righ from he ground with little effort. What could be causing this ? .

Rose of sharon is prone to fungal infection and bacterial leaf spot diseases. Without a picture, it isn't possible to guess what is bothering your shrubs. If you are in the USA, your county has an extension office where you can take a sample for diagnosis. Use this link to find your office: http://pickyourown.org/countyextensionagentoffices.htm
