|Rose of Sharon should be pruned in the very early spring, before new growth begins. If you prune it now it may develop new growth which won't have time to harden off before cold weather arrives. The new growth will be killed back by winter weather and you'll have to prune again in the spring. I vote for waiting until spring to do any pruning!
