Maintenance Notes: 

Rose of Sharon requires essentially no special care. A good 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch would be a welcome addition to the root zone. Pruning is rarely required but can be done in early spring. If you wish to fertilize, a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer, can be applied in early spring, once the ground has thawed.

Rose of Sharon can be quite late to leaf out in spring, so do be patient.

Fun Facts: 

The technical term for plants that grow tall and narrow like the Pillar series of rose of Sharon is "fastigiate" (pronounced fa-stidge-itt).
