Hello,
I have had rose mallow in the west side of my home in Central Illinois for ten years. It has been beautiful and vigorous- so vigorous that I gave it a really hard prune last fall. As of Memorial Day weekend, this is all I have. It's obviously got some growth, but have I been so severe that it is set back by weeks, months, or years? Thanks!

Hi Mafinarayahoocom!
Welcome!
Rose Mallows are notorious for being a late to emerge plant. Just keep watering and it should take off soon. In Texas my Rose Mallows all went dormant and barely had growth at the beginning of May. It will be fine.
May you have a safe and joyful Memorial Weekend!

Mine are just starting to leaf out.
