Re: Rose of Sharon

I don't know why either, because here, H. 'Diana' is their favorite.
I've put up with it for over 10 years and this past year cut the shrub
down to the ground but didn't remove it. Of course, she sprouted. I kept
hacking her back throughout the season, not wanting to dig and disturb
the new stuff planted near it. Finally, after JB season was done I let
her grow a tad and I did finally get to enjoy a few flowers on her.

Kitty and Dan,

Japanese beetles seem to leave my H. 'Diana' alone. Don't know why.

Good to hear from you Dan.  A no-kill shelter seems like it could be a
daunting task and I really commend you for helping out.  Justine is so lucky
to have you.  Poor thing, I can't imagine her living in a shelter for half
her life.  I wish I could take in more, but I am maxed out at 5 cats.

JBs weren't as bad as some years for me, and yes, they nailed my Kopper King
as wellas some other favorite targets, but I really don't want to get rid of
it.  I have a Rose of Sharon called Blue Satin that they just refuse to
leave alone.  I'm wondering if that will have to come out.
