Caring for Ruby Spice Clethra - Summersweet

A great low-maintenance native plant that pollinators love. Prefers medium, well-drained soil, but is adaptable to many soil types and will tolerate wet conditions (not standing water) once established. Best shape if left unpruned and requires very little to no maintenance - although suckers may appear around plant and require pruning.
