I planted a rose of sharon last summer when it was in bloom, and now it looks like it’s dead. Will it bloom again in the spring? I live in Buffalo, New York.

It should be fine. Right now the plant is dormant and pruning will help improve its appearance. If you wait till late winter/early spring just prior to bud formation, pruning will help encourage new growth.
