Sugar Tip® Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus 'America Irene Scott' PP #20,579

SKU
07483
This eye-catching Rose of Sharon has brightly variegated creamy-white and bluish-green foliage. Unlike Purpureus Variegatus this beauty actually flowers, producing loads of clear pink, double flowers in summer. Does not produce seed like older cultivars. A wonderful hardy hibiscus that provides late season color as a hedge, in perennial or shrub borders, or containers.
