Sweetly fragrant creamy-white flowers that resemble white candles! These dense upright spires are 5-6" tall and cover the plant for several weeks in midsummer. Sturdy, upright selection of our native Summersweet displaying lustrous dark green foliage which turns a striking golden yellow in fall. A semi-formal, compact habit makes it an ideal specimen for border and formal plantings. Thrives in partial shade or full sun, in organic rich, moist acid soils. Beloved by bees. A Michael Dirr selection.
