Rose of Sharon
I have a ROS bush that I have had approx. 5 years. It has always done well. This year it was slow to leaf out...... it still hasn't. Actually, it has leaves on about the bottom foot or so, and one lonely branch leafed out about 2 feet.
I assume it was frost damaged, but my question is about whether to hope it will grow again next year or is it toast? Should I prune it back to where the green growth is? Leave it as it is (about 5 - 6 foot)? Dig it out and plant something else?
Thanks for any input.
