A couple of Rose Of Sharon sprouts about 2 ft. high were cut almost down to the ground by mistake. Can I still transplant the root ball and what is left of the plant this fall?

    if seeds fell to the ground then next year you will have more Roses of Sharon, the roots are very large and difficult to dig out , we have plenty of them and train them as standards in some areas, once you have them they multiply .

    Single-flowered forms reseed in the right climate areas, double-flowered tend not to form fruits. What USDA Hardiness Zone are you in? If cold enough you might want to wait until end of winter to transplant.

    My experience of Rose of Sharon is that they are easy to transplant.

    I live in growing zone 8a. The Rose Of Sharon plants were juvenile saplings about two ft. high. They were cut off accidentally near the ground .about 2 inches of the single stems remain. Will they die or can I transplant the root ball and whats left of the stem this fall?

    Dig when leaves drop and move then. They are not likely to be dead.
