A completely new look for Rose of Sharon!  

Rose of Sharon, that great garden classic, has been updated for a new generation. ‘Sugar Tip Gold’ Hardy Hibiscus (Hibiscus syriacus 'America Irene Scott' USPP 20,579) has both flowers and foliage that will stop traffic.

This brand new version of Rose of Sharon is great in so many ways:

*Fluffy pink double blooms all summer look like bakery confections.
*It looks fragile, but is cold tolerant and will come back yearly, from zone 5 to zone 8.
*The foliage is unique – a bright variegated blue-green and creamy-white – beautiful even when it’s not flowering.
*Very eye-catching in the garden from spring to fall.
*It doesn’t set seeds, so no pesky seedling to watch for.
*Grows in any soil as long as it isn’t too dry or too wet.

This semi-dwarf plant is just the right size to fit into the new trend of smaller gardens and garden ‘rooms’, so don’t hesitate to buy a few. It is even fine in a container for a little while, and then can be transplanted out in the garden.

This is a pollinator magnet and will be buzzing with bees, butterflies and hummingbirds throughout the season. (It is also deer resistant, so it won’t be buzzing with deer activity all season!)

This is a striking addition to newer gardens and will perk up mature gardens in a heartbeat. Order today!

* Double pink flowers
* Unique bi-colored foliage
* Prolific bloomer
* Perennial even in cold-winter areas
* Easy care
