The Sugar Tip® Rose of Sharon is a great dual-feature deciduous shrub, with attractive white-edged glossy leaves that would be worth growing for that alone. There is so much more, though, once mid-summer comes and the first blooms open. A delicious true-pink, the double blooms cover the bush from mid-summer right through fall, and this sterile variety makes no seeds, so no dead-heading is needed, and there won’t be any troublesome seedlings sprouting everywhere. It’s compact and bushy, easily kept to 6 feet tall and wide, so it’s perfect in your shrub beds, or for growing in a tub.

  • Double blooms of charming pink
  • Beautiful white-edged leaves are always attractive
  • Continuous blooming from mid-summer to late fall
  • Seedless, so no spreading and no dead-heading
  • Compact and rounded – ideal in pots and planters

Plant your Sugar Tip® Rose of Sharon in full sun for the best leaf color and the most blooms. Any well-drained soil is suitable, even poor and dry soils, but some extra richness is always appreciated. Avoid wet areas, particularly in colder regions. Pests and diseases leave it alone, and so do deer (usually). A spring pruning is always good, but not essential, but avoid summer trimming, which will prevent blooming.
