Clethra alnifolia Compacta

Clethra alnifolia 'Compacta'

Summersweet

'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.

PRN Preferred:  Compact dense habit, never needs pruning.  Loved by pollinators.
