I am getting rid of a bamboo that has gotten out of control. Not spreading, but shedding those little paper-y thingies all over the place.
I asked a landscape architect relative what to put in its place. He suggested Rose of Sharon, which is a kind of Hibiscus.
I have had TERRIBLE luck with some exotic Hibiscus that I bought at the Huntington plant sale years ago. Could never control the )**^$^*& whitefly, no matter what I tried. I do not remember what kind of Hibiscus they were; lost the tag long ago.
So now I come to the question: Does anyone know whether Rose of Sharon is subject to whitefly as well? If so, no use planting it.
This is So. Calif coastal, Zone 24/8.
