Rose Of Sharon Plants

Rose of Sharon Bush

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
