Clethra ‘Pink Spire’: As sweet as roses, but better.

Clethra ‘Pink Spire’

Blooms July through August, soft pink, fragrant cone-shaped flowers. Oh, and what a fragrance! As sweet as roses, but more potent, and certainly less trouble. You will love this plant. Very low maintenance, deciduous shrub can take full sun to part shade, and can tolerate moist soils, even wetlands or pondside. Grows 6’ by 6’ in maturity. Attracts bees and butterflies.
