The Q&A Archives: Planting Rose of Sharon Bush

Question: We have sandy soil and I would like to know how to plant a Rose of Sharon Bush so that it will survive.

Answer: Sandy soils drain quickly and do not hold a lot of nutrients so you'll want to amend the planting bed with some organic matter, both to hold moisture and to release nutrients as the organic matter decomposes. Use compost, shredded leaves, aged manure or peatmoss to amend your soil.
