'Tom's Compact' Summersweet is the most compact we have seen of the Summersweets. This fragrant white flowered beauty was found and introduced by a great nurseryman of our area, Tom Dilatush. We've been waiting a long time to get our hands on Clethra alnifolia 'Compacta' and to top it off, it is wet site and salt tolerant. The tight branching structure provided excellent shelter for birds throughout the year.
PRN Preferred: Compact dense habit, never needs pruning. Loved by pollinators.
