Fragrant White Blooms Meet Compact Growth
Why Hummingbird Summersweet Shrubs?
Fragrant white blooms merge with the promise of richly-hued green growth, delivering contrast to the Hummingbird Summersweet Shrub 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 springtime flowers and vivid autumnal colors for a show that lasts nearly year-round.

Customer Reviews & Photos
We received this shrub several weeks ago, and it has thrived in a half whiskey barrel. The leaves have filled out along with beautiful, whimsical bud formations. Very pleased with this little lady!
Arrived healthy and both are doing well.
Planting & Care
2. Watering: Water your new Hummingbird Summersweet regularly and deeply during its first growing season to help establishment, approximately once weekly. If you’re not sure when to water and how much watering your tree needs, simply check the soil. If the soil is dry down to around 2 or 3 inches, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: If you want to bolster your Summersweet's growth, apply slow-release, well-balanced fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.
4. Pruning: Pruning isn’t required, but if you’d like to shape your Summersweet, simply do so a few times a year, or however often is necessary to shape.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
