Summersweet is a deciduous shrub prized for its fragrant, white flower spikes that bloom for weeks in mid-summer. The spicy blooms attract pollinators and mature to brown seed capsules that feed birds in the fall. These native shrubs make excellent focal points or flowering hedges for wildlife. They grow well in damp locations and can be planted near streams, ponds, and bogs.
