Rose Of Sharon Buds Do Not Open

Question From: d. lamb - Kathleen, Georgia, United States
Q: i bought a blushing bride light pink rose of sharon two years ago and it always loaded with buds that nerver open ,why

A: I can't tell you why this happens. There are many factors that effect the life of any plant. Any chance this shrub is in full sun in spring and then trees throw it into shade at the end of May? Lack of sunlight would be my best guess. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
