Weave Sugartina® Summersweet (Clethra alnifolia 'Crystalina' PP# 21561) into your planting designs and patio containers. You'll love how their scented blooms reach their peak, just as most other flowering shrubs have faded for the season.
This lovely, low, rounded ornamental stays small, but is big on charm! Fragrant white flower spikes cover this dwarf shrub in the middle of summer...and continue to blooming into fall.
There will hardly be a moment that butterflies won't cover their long, floriferous racemes. Each blooms is composed of up to a hundred tiny true flowers that open from base to tip.
Hummingbirds and beneficial pollinators adore these six-inch spikes , too! They'll come back time and again to work each flower over, gathering nutrient-rich nectar.
Enjoy their excellent sweet scent that perfumes your entire yard! Never cloying, Sugartina Summersweet smells like fresh honey.
Grow plenty of these useful compact shrubs to boost your local ecology. You'll want to sneak a few of the eye-catching white blooms to use in cut flower arrangements, too!
Showy oblong leaves create a lush presentation even before the flowers appear. The leaves are glossy, dark green sun-catchers and grow remarkably long for such a petite plant.
As autumn arrives, Sugartina turns golden and copper to help set the stage for a pretty fall season. Those pristine Sugartina Summersweet flowers will give way to small capsules that look like dark brown peppercorns, giving rise to their native nickname "Sweet Pepperbush".
The decorative fruit persists to provide winter interest. It is a boon for songbirds, who eat the fruit during long cold months.
This is a great choice for beginners, as Sugartina Summersweet is generally a low maintenance shrub, ready to provide you with its array of ornamental features without a lot of work from you.
Sugartina has a rounded, dense nature, and tends to grow in a lovely, natural form without the need for much pruning. Add much-needed color and fragrance to your space...whether that's on your balcony or in a garden border.
