More Information

Description Sugartina® 'Crystalina' summersweet (Clethra alnifolia) is a fantastic native shrub that gives you fragrance, fall color, and more. Glossy, dark green foliage turns brilliant yellow in fall. In mid-summer, white flower spikes cover the shrub. Some people say they smell like vanilla; others say root beer. Either way, it's deliciously intoxicating in the warm summer air. Don't be surprised if you see pollinators buzzing around the flowers. Proven Winners ColorChoice shrubs selected Sugartina® 'Crystalina' summersweet for its landscape-friendly dwarf habit.

So far, so good

I'd give a 5 star, but I received 1 clethra that was pretty worse for wear, and she is still not thriving as her two sisters are. I generally plant in groups of 3. Can't wait to see what they do next summer in my moonlight garden

Healthiest plant I’ve ever ordered online

This little plant arrived perfectly packaged and ready to be planted in her new home. Although a little smaller than I thought, she made up for her diminutive size with her glossy, full leaves and full root system. How do I add a picture to my review? I am soooo pleased and will definitely be ordering again. Highly recommend!!
