Clethra alnifolia

Clethra alnifolia is a deciduous shrub that has extremely fragrant bottlebrush flowers in the summer. This tough shrub will tolerate poor soils and excess moisture and can be planted in sun or shade. Clethra is an excellent attractor for pollinators like bees and butterflies and birds often feed on the seed heads in fall. This selection is one of the winners of the Georgia Pollinator Plant of the Year award from the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia in Athens, GA. Photo by Shannah Montgomery
