Rose of sharon bush

Zone 41006 | Jen765 added on April 30, 2017 | Answered

I just planted my rose of sharon bushes last year. This year my dog scratched the bark off of the bottom of one and the leaves have wilted and turned brown. Is there a way to save it? Should I trim it down to where my dog got it, if so it\\\\\\\'s at the bottom of the bush. I pulled the bark up and put a bread tie around to try and protect it. Help

If you're dog scratched it deeper than just the bark, then there may be permanent damage to the plant's vascular system. This article may help:
