Maintenance Notes: 

Grows in any soil unless it is either very dry or very wet. Prune in late fall or early spring. Can be heavily pruned. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilizer in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. A supplemental dose of liquid fertilizer may be needed in mid-summer. This plant is slower growing than other rose of sharon.

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.
