“Prized for its handsome foliage, compact upright habit, and fuzzy spikes of fragrant flowers, summersweet is a suckering deciduous shrub native to the eastern United States from Maine to Florida. ‘Hummingbird’ is a low-growing selection. In midsummer, its spicy-scented white flowers attract butterflies and bees. Peppercorn-like seed heads follow the flowers, providing winter interest. The leaves turn butter-yellow in fall.
‘Hummingbird’ needs a moist acid soil with good drainage in full sun to partial shade. It tolerates occasionally wet to soggy soil. Avoid planting it in extremely hot or dry locations. It works well in mixed borders and foundation plantings and as a ground cover.”
