Fragrant White Blooms Meet Compact Growth

Why Summersweet Clethra Shrubs?

Also known as Hummingbird Summersweet, this shrub produces fragrant, white blooms that merge with the promise of richly-hued green growth, delivering contrast that's second to none. And this deciduous favorite lives up to its name, attracting graceful wildlife that gives you the most elegant yard on the block.

From mixed borders along your driveway to perennial plantings in your flower beds, the Summersweet stands out...even in wet, swamp-like areas. Unlike similar ornamental varieties, the Summersweet stands up to tough conditions, thriving in a compact growth habit that's well-suited to tight spaces, poor soil conditions and even cold fronts down to -20 degrees. That means you get summertime flowers and vivid autumnal colors for a show that lasts nearly year-round.

    Plants have arrived!

    I ordered 3 Summersweet Clethra Hummingbirds shrubs and they arrived today. I am extremely happy with their size, their health and their packaging. I will wait a bit to plant so I cannot report on the root systems. I would not hesitate to order again from this company, I’m happy to have found the ! I am in CT.

    Summersweet Clethra

    Great experience. Website was easy to use, shrub arrived quickly and well packed, and it was covered in pollinators before we could plant it.

    Summersweet far beyond expectations

    These beautiful plants arrived in perfect condition, in full bloom and smelled heavenly. They were in 3 gallon containers and, upon planting, looked like they had been in my garden for years...... My expectations were greatly exceeded. Thank you~
