2 years ago I purchased a Rose of Sharon Bush. It bloomed beautiful.. At the end of the fall and early winter the deer munch on it. This Spring and Summer it did not produce leaves or buds, but the branches were bendable and plyabe . I did purchase the recemmended fertilizer and follow the instructions. I do have new shoots coming up from what appears to be the root area. But no action on that original tree itself. What can I do? email is

The deer munching on it may have done enough damage to have killed the upper part of the plant. At this point, since it is showing no signs of life, the old stems can be cut off and you can encourage the new shoots to grow and new bush.  Naturally you should start surrounding the plant with deer netting for the winter to prevent the deer from eating it once again.
