Rose Of Sharon Plants

rose of sharon

Zone Portage, Mi 49024 | Kathy Gavitt added on September 4, 2016 | Answered

I have a rose of sharon that suddenly appeared on the side of our garage this summer. It was never there before, and I just love the plant. My sister-in-law gave us a large cutting off her rose of sharon. Not many roots came with it. Is there something I can do to encourage more rooting to grow? Should I go ahead and plant it now as is? HELP ... I love the plant and want another one in my yard.

Yes, you can promote additional root formation and also allow the plant to become more established in a pot before planting. See these articles for how:
