Hi, I am Dave Epstein, welcome to Growing Wisdom and for many of you one of your favorite plants is a rose of Sharon, Hibiscus and one of the things that I recommend doing in the spring time before it leaves out is pruning it and pruning the rose of Sharon is probably one of the easier things you can do basically you just hacked it back to the size that you want and it will flush out wonderful new growth in the spring and beautiful flowers later in the summer. This particular rose of Sharon here is a little bit taller than I like and we are just going to start literally pruning it back and we are just cut the branches down, so that I get this down to about two in a half or 3 feet tall.
As I prune this, I want prune it just above a little bud and that bud now will flash out a wonderful new growth later on in the summer you can really bring this down quite low. I usually bring mine down to about 3 feet tall and then it will grow another couple of feet during the course of summer. If you do not prune this they can get very big, growing anywhere from 8 to 12, to 15 feet high to get really huge and the flowers are as big if you do not prune it so if you want big, bold, beautiful flowers really prune your rose of Sharon hard every spring. Come back every week for all our tips, hints, and helps at Growing Wisdom.
