    Lil' Kim® rose of Sharon is a very special plant - it's about half the size of a conventional rose of Sharon, and sports an elegant, refined habit.

    • My Lil' Kim (Antong Two) rose of sharon was supposed to be a dwarf with a height of three feet according to your tag on the plant. It is now (after six years) over eight feet tall. I am very disappointed in it. What is the proper way to prune it?
