Clethra 'Hummingbird'



Common Name: Sweet pepperbush 

Clethra ‘Hummingbird’ is a compact cultivar of Clethra alnifolia (‘Summersweet’), a deciduous shrub known for its mid to late summer blooms of gorgeous and fragrant white flowers that provide a source of nectar for various pollinators. Clethra will tolerate wet, poor drainage and even flower in full shade. This shrub is so versatile and tolerates pruning, and it blooms during a time when nectar sources may be low. Clethra is a must have for every garden and your pollinators will agree!

A benefit to planting Clethra ‘Hummingbird’ is its slower spread and more compact size at maturity.
