Hardy Hibiscus with Bright, Variegated Foliage

Rose of Sharon Sugar Tip™, Hibiscus syriacus 'America Irene Scott', is an eye-catching new Rose of Sharon with brightly variegated foliage.

The bluish-green leaves have lovely creamy-white margins and are topped with loads of clear pink, double flowers.

Hibiscus Sugar Tip™ does not produce seed like older cultivars which makes it perfect for both southern and northern climates.

Sugar Tip™ is easy to grow in full sun and normal garden soils.  It is an excellent flowering shrub that may be massed, planted in groups or used as a specimen; very tolerant of summer heat and humidity.

Larger flowers may be obtained on 'America Irene Scott' by pruning back hard to 2-3 buds in early spring.

A confection too delicious to resist, you can use Sugar Tip™ as an accent specimen in the garden, or make it a breathtaking hedge!  You will be the envy of your neighborhood!

This garden plant is sure to provide many years of enjoyment!
