Rose of Sharon

(Question)

I had a beautiful Rose of Sharon for about 6 years. This spring no leafs grow. Nursery staff said scrape the bark and if green it could be ok. It was green. Now one of the main shouts has stared to get leafs. No sign of leafs on the other shouts yet! Should I cut back the part without leafs, or just leave it to see if it grows again?
Is there anything I can do to help it?
Thanks for you help.

Thank you for your inquiry. Rose of Sharon is susceptible to winter kill during severe cold temperatures which is what we experienced this past winter. A number of clients have written in to us with this exact same problem. Please refer to the following question Rose of Sharon  for our response .
