I now have 2 Rose of Sharons and love them. Mine our in the corner of a fence line, Bloom there hearts out. We live in TX. and it gets very hot here. Many days of 100+ and they show no stress. I did not know I could cut a branch and get new plants that way. Will try it it see how it does. Thanks for the info. Edie.

My neighbor has several Rose of Sharons at his fence. Since he has a big Crape Myrtle (also half of the tree is hanging in my yard) covering the sun, the Rose of Sharons are all hanging over the fence in my yard. I have pulled hundreds, literally hundreds of little Rose of Sharons from my property. Sometime I missed them and then it is more work to pull them out. He said that he wanted to share them with me, they are beautiful, but I do not like them. He does not understand that other people have other taste. I did tell him that he can plant whatever he wants, but keep them in his own property.

francine38...I know too well about all the Rose of Sharon babies you speak of!! I had one I had pruned to be like a tree, about a 4 foot high trunk, and then the branches fanned out from there. All summer long I could be seen on my knees pulling the seedlings out of my lawn. To me it was worth it. I gave Rose of Sharon a hard pruning every fall and was rewarded with a bounty of flowers from spring until almost the first frost. Miss that sweet tree since I have moved 3 years ago.

I have had my Rose of Sharon for about ten years and haven't had a single seedling. Don't know if the blue variety I have is sterile, if the birds are eating the seeds (the feeder is nearby), or what.
