why did our rose of sharon stop blooming?
hi, we bought a house with some lovely blooming rose of sharon in the yard. it was july 2005 when we moved. the rose of sharon was spectacular. in 2006 the blooms were significantly less. this year there are no blooms at all. the plants are not shrub like and look more like little trees. i've pruned some of the growth coming out closer to the ground to maintain the shapes. did i mess things up? plus, the utility company pruned one of them on the left side at the top because it got so big and obstructed a line that they had to work on. did this mess it up too? thanks for any help or ideas that anyone can provide. i love these plants!
