Late summer brings long, 6-inch spikes of pristine, white flowers with a heavenly fragrance that is sure to bring pollinators to your yard.

Even before the flowers appear, your Sugartina boasts 4-inch long, oblong leaves of a dark green hue. The foliage fills out your shrub quite nicely with an attractive glossy sheen that catches the afternoon sunlight. As autumn arrives, your Sugartine will gift your yard with subtle tones of gold and brown before it retires for its winter rest.
