|We transplanted the rose of sharon tree before memorial day to a spot that is just as sunny and it has not gotten any leaves on it yet. it was late in leafing on one side last year but ended up blooming beautifully in August. Help - is is a lost cause?

|Rose of Sharon can be extremely slow in leafing out and developing flowers, as you know. Having moved it in late spring may have set it back even more. As soon as the roots are comfortably re-established you should see new growth. I'd continue to be patient with it. Hope you see signs of life soon.
