Q.rose of sharon pods

Zone Macon MO 63552 | Don Dixon added on November 6, 2017 | Answered

It’s November & our rose of sharon shrub has a lot of pods on it.
Do I need to pluck them off? I’m not aiming to prune any limbs – I’d like it to grow more.
thanks, Don

Yes. you can pluck these and keep the seeds for planting later. You wouldn't prune right now anyways. This should be done in spring. This will, in fact, force the shrub to grow back more vigorous.
