I have a large Rose of Sharon tree. Another tree started from this one and I would like more to start. What makes a new tree or bush start?

Most of the time, these trees will drop spent blooms, which left on the ground will end up reseeding and producing more plants. That's why many of them have little sprouts coming up around the trees. While the little sprouts can be dug up and replanted (keeping roots intact), you can save the spent blooms for seed harvesting to make more or start some through cuttings as well. They are propagated the same as other hibiscus plants, so this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/hibiscus-propagation.htm
