Sugar Tip® Rose of Sharon
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!
