Buy Sugar Tip® Althea online. Sugar Tip® is an eye-catching, new Rose of Sharon with brightly variegated creamy-white and bluish-green foliage. Unlike 'Purpureus Variegatus' this beauty actually flowers! It produces loads of clear pink, double flowers and does not produce seed like older cultivars. This is a beautiful plant that will look great in your garden all summer. Note Althea or Rose of Sharon Hibiscus is considered a woody shrub or tree and will not die back to the ground in winter like Hardy Hibiscus.
Family: Malvaceae · Common Name: Althea / Rose of Sharon / Hardy Hibiscus
