Two feet is somewhat close spacing for rose of sharon (3-5 feet is recommended), so they probably will end up smaller that they would have been if planted alone. But I don't think they will truly harm each other, they will just be smaller than usual. Making sure they get proper fertilization will help (just make sure to follow the fertilizer label and not to over-apply).
