The Hummingbird Summersweet is a beautiful and versatile shrub that is sure to add interest and charm to any landscape. This compact variety produces sweetly fragrant, bottlebrush-shaped flowers in mid to late summer that attract hummingbirds and other pollinators to the garden. The flowers come in shades of white or pink, and they are set against a backdrop of glossy green leaves that turn yellow in the fall. The Hummingbird Summersweet is a slow-growing shrub with a rounded habit, making it an excellent choice for foundation plantings or as an accent in mixed borders. It is also a low-maintenance shrub that is easy to grow and care for, making it an excellent choice for gardeners who want a beautiful plant that requires minimal care.
