Categories: ,


Clethraceae. This summersweet is a sport of C. alnifolia ‘Pink Spires’. Its fragrant, bottlebrush flowers are a darker pink. The “pepper” part of the common name derives from the mature fruits, capsules which have a vague resemblance to peppercorns, however, with no element of spiciness.

Grow in moist, acidic soils in a sheltered position in partial shade or shade.

To 2 m.    Eastern U.S.    ***  5L pot
