Q.rose of sharon – unbloomed buds

Zone Toronto Canada | Anonymous added on September 9, 2017 | Answered

My rose of Sharon shrubs have many buds that did not bloom. I live in Toronto so winter is an issue for our shrubs. Do I remove the buds that do not bloom or do I keep them on the shrub through the winter for next year. My fear about keeping them on the shrub is ice forming and bending or breaking of the branches.

These buds will, more than likely not have time to form before they freeze over. Whether you choose to keep them or cut them is up to you. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rose-of-sharon/rose-of-sharon-bush.htm
