    I am a big fan of the Rose of Sharon. Just be warned - they spread like crazy. The deer enjoy muching up the spent flowers & basically leave the plant alone. For once, the deer are helping & not harming. Enjoy!

    I really like the plant because it is relatively maintenance free, the color is beautiful. Of course it needs to be fertilized. I use the irrigation system I put in,on a timer.

      Maybe you have poor soil but I've never fertilized my Rose of Sharon & they are doing great!
