Summersweet

Clethra alnifolia

Summersweet is unique among shrubs because it's one of the few that blooms in late summer or fall and has fragrant flowers. Native to areas of North America, it offers clusters of spicy-scented blooms in shades of white or pink. The dark green foliage turns bright yellow in autumn, adding to its season of interest.

Summersweet grows best in moist soil, though it tolerates average soil just fine. It thrives in partial shade, but will tolerate deep shade. It eventually forms a colony of stems, so give it plenty of room to grow.
