Summersweet Sugartina® 'Crystalina' - 3 Gal.


Clethra alnifolia SUGARTINA® 'Crystalina'

Sugartina 'Crystalina' enhances all the great summer attributes of our native Clethra and puts it all together in a tight, dense, small landscape friendly package. Dense and full, this wider growing than tall selection will never breach the 3' foot range in height yet it is still a powerhouse in the landscape with deep green, impossible glossy foliage and branch ends topped with 2 to 4" long spires of pure white, incredible fragrant flowers in late July and August. The scent from this plant's bloom will fill your yard with sweetness and will attract quite a following of local butterflies, too! With its low growing, contained form, 'Crystalina' will fit nearly anywhere in the landscape meaning its seductive scent can grow right up near the house or will make a pleasing, controlled grouping near a woods edge at your property border. It even has a great display of yellow fall foliage color that is the climax to the season for this easy care shrub that will thrive in sun, partial sun or mostly shade and will even tolerate wet feet.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!
