Can you root Rose of Sharon?
I saw a couple of this very unusual blue purple color this weekend, out of town, planted in an industrial park. I've only seen shades of pink or white before, and up till now, hadn't cared much for the plant. It has some buds and lots of seed pods. None of the seed pods were ripe. I picked a few of the biggest pods I could find, though I don't know whether the seeds can be used. I also picked one stem.
Can I root this? I assume I should remove all buds and seedpods? What about the pods I collected?
