Vivid Pink & Fragrant Blooms in Summer


Ruby Spice Summersweet, Clethra alnifolia 'Ruby Spice', is a distinctive true pink that ranks supreme!  In early to late July and into August, the plant bears vivid pink flower spikes on the current season's growth.


Being delightfully fragrant, Ruby Spice Summersweet provides a late summer treat of dozens of flowers that are arranged on upright panicles.


Uniquely hued, this lovely variety blooms longer than any other of its species.  Ruby Spice Summersweet prefers full sun to partial shade, but will tolerate full shade as well as clay soil.


This species is high on the desirability list for northern gardeners, but it may need some wind protection in coldest areas.


Remarkably tolerant of a variety of conditions, including roadsides and seashores, Clethra Ruby Spice compact habit makes it good for small gardens in shrub borders and mixed in perennial borders.  The plant provides glowing yellow fall foliage as well.


If necessary, the Clethra Ruby Spice can be pruned in early spring.
 


* Water tolerant
* Full shade

Low care plant Review by Topper
Rating
My plant grew to at least 6 foot tall and remained neat with absolutely no maintenance. Being basically unmotivated by work, this is my kind of plant.
Late flowering Review by Beam me up

Needed a plant to get some color in late summer. Ruby Spice does that and is hardy.
Tough Review by KL
Rating
The Ruby Spice summersweet performs good for me in almost full shade and along a road that is salted a lot in the winter.
