Transplanting Rose of Sharon -- Will It Get Bigger?
Evening! I have a double-flowering purple Rose of Sharon now growing in a pine straw natural area in part shade/filtered afternoon sun. It's at least 5 years old. This past year, it's been so engulfed by a neighboring ligustrum that only half of it bloomed. I'm considering moving it to a new location where it will get only morning sun and won't have the same competition from pine trees and ligustrums. Right now, this thing is fairly delicate, perhaps 8 feet tall and no more than a few feet wide. But I always hear of people with these monster Rose of Sharon plants that seem much larger than the ones I have. It makes me wonder if the current location has knocked its size back and if it will turn out to be much larger after I move it. That would be fine, just nice to know BEFORE I plant around it. Anyone have any thoughts about this?
