Recently moved into a house. Rose of sharon is not deep enough and leaning very bad. I cam almost pull it out of the ground. Still alive, has green leaves.
Its about 70-75 degrees here right now. Can i dig it out and replant?

Hi and welcome to NGA!

Go on and dig and replant. Hardy Hibiscus are tough. It may or may not wilt a bit once replanted - if you have a good rootball then it shouldn't be a problem at all. If not, it may pout for a week or so. Give it a good watering a few hours before you dig it up.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Before you dig up your Rose of Sharon and plant it deeper, figure out why its not rooting deeper. Is the soil too clay-y? Is the area to wet?
