Pepperbush ‘Hummingbird’ ‘Clethra alnifolia‘
Every garden needs a sweet-pepperbush. In summer, the fragrance of the spike-like flowers is wonderful and the fall show with yellow leaves very nice as well. Pepperbush is a deciduous shrub that is going to look best with moist to wet soil, in sun to part sun. After established, it can tolerate a drier garden. The cultivar Hummingbird is shorter (3’) than the species and sports dense white flower spikes. Butterflies & bees love them. Good as a single species border, massed, in mixed borders, around decks, or as foundation plants. Plants are shipped in one gallon containers. Zones 5-9.
