    My several year old rose of sharon has no buds or blossoms, & has some dark spots on the bark. Is it dead?

    I have three ROS bushes and they are ~ 15 feet tall and ~ 5 feet wide. They came with the house we bought. I want them to be shorter.
    I’d like to chop off about 8 feet of the top so that they are the height of the fence.
    Is this a good idea?
    When should I do this?
