'Edith Wilder' Sweetshrub is a lovely selection of this adaptable native plant, first appearing at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore, PA. The reddish maroon flowers are strongly and consistently fragrant, and are displayed profusely on the upright branches. The foliage is rounder than many of the other forms, and is held at right angles to the stems. Fall color is a good clear yellow. Wet site and dry site tolerant, deer resistant and native, what more could you ask?
