Q.Rose of Sharon seed pods

Zone zone 5 central Michgian | jeffriess added on September 29, 2014 | Answered

I’d like to remove the seed pods that appear on my rose of sharon shrubs every fall so that I don’t get new plants sprouting up everywhere. Will it hurt the plant?

Not at all. In addition to that, if you remove the flowers as soon as they're finished blooming, you'll not only prevent the formation of seed pods completely, but the plant will be encouraged to make more flowers because it won't be putting energy into making seeds.
