Can you start a rose of sharon just from cutting off a branch and planting it along with some seeds?

Yes, a branch can be used to start a rose of sharon. Cut less than a 1/2" diameter 5" to 12" long piece with or without leaves, flowers or side branches. Stick the cut end about 2" to 3" deep into wet ground (preferably at the spot where you want the plant to eventually be), water a little bit a few days later, then leave alone. It most likely will root and grow a rose of sharon having the same flowers as the original. There may be some die back, but that can be ignored. Plant anytime during the year and allow a few years for the planting to grow to over 5 feet...... remember that this plant usually flowers in late summer.

After you plant the rose of sharon, should you cover it up in the winter? Maybe with a large trash bag, our winters are cold and windy.

You could do that, but I never did and I have had success starting them here in central Ohio. For the first year, you might want to put some type of fencing around the plant to prevent animals from digging it up and to prevent humans from stepping on it.
