Clethra alnifolia 'Hummingbird' (Large Plant)

Sweet Pepperbush

Hardy Perennial

An unusual dwarf Clethra, which is uncommon in the UK, but is well worth growing in your garden. Clethra plants play host to summer spikes of clove-scented, creamy white flowers during the height of summer, which look similar to Hebe blooms.

Clethra alnifolia 'Hummingbird' is bushy and upright, adding structure to the back of a mixed cottage garden border. They are maintenance-free and this compact variety has a much more dense habit, and more flowers, than other Clethra. Height and Spread: 120cm (48").
