rose of sharon

years ago I brought 3 of them from my parents'  & plantd them in my back yard.  they don't like the soil here.  one problem is the layer of caleche which prevents them from deep rooting.

2 have died.  the survivor looks rather bonsai-like because it doesn't grow.  but at least this year it's had more blossoms than ever.
