Rose of Sharon

Bovardim added on May 26, 2015 | Answered

Does this shrub/tree flower and leaf late? I just moved and a tree in the yard is a beautiful shape. Think it is a rose of Sharon but then again, more tree than shrub. It has no flowers or leaves on it as yet and this is late May. Some small branches are dead but most are not. Any ideas what it is and should I be patient?
