rose of sharon


live in Toronto have 6 Rose of Sharon have flowered. Now have many green “closed” round bulbs. Should these be cut off for winter? Do not want to cut twigs/branches on which the bulbs are attached. Thank yo.


Those “bulbs” that you see are the seed pods. Rose of Sharon trees self-seed prodigiously. So unless you want many, many seedlings in your garden next year, you should remove the pods.

Here’s a good picture for you to compare with the pods on your plant
