It is probable that it is getting root bound. Rose of sharon can get to be ten feet tall and it probably never going to bloom in a container. Unless you have room to put it in a container the size of a half whiskey barrel you will continue to have problems.

probably need to look at your fertilizer, have neighbors grown too tall (tree next door gving too deep shade? ) look for a fertilizer designed to encourage blooming. It may also be root bound. Yhey like lots of room. The half whiskey barrel is a great suggestion to me.  I look forward to hearing what others think.

maybe this plant needs a deeper container. needs a hole with rocks at the bottom for good drainage...what about using a 55 gallon trash can with a hole for drainage on wheels................then you can move it around with ease and when it get bigger it will give you some shade.
