      Compact, mounding, 3 ft. tall and wide, deciduous shrub with glossy, dark green leaves, turning a striking yellow color in autumn. Fluffy, bottle brush like, 3 to 6 in. spikes of white flowers appear in mid to late summer and blooms last for 4 to 6 weeks. Butterflies and bees are attracted to the extremely fragrant flower spikes. Blooms are followed by dark brown seed capsules which persist into winter. Blooms on current season's growth and has the ability to produce a good crop of flowers in shaded areas. Excellent, trouble free shrub to use in mass, as a shrub border, or anywhere it's attractive foliage, fragrant summer blooms, good fall color, and tidy winter appearance can be enjoyed.

      • Ideal for small gardens or around foundations
      • A good shrub for wet areas, such as low spots, stream banks or pond/water garden edges
      • Attracts butterflies and bees
      • Provides multi-season interest
      • 1 gal. ships in pot unless state or federal regulations require otherwise
      • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington
      • When shipped as a bare root plant, the Shake&Ship system will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment
      • Performs best in plant growing zones 3 to 9, when grown in other Zones, special care requirements will be required
      • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 3 ft. away from other plants or structures
      • May ship in a dormant state, with bare branches and no leaves, especially in early spring when plant has been pruned back to promote lateral branching

      I was skeptical about buying plant material online from a big box retailer. Home Depot surprised me. The plants were in excellent condition, included excellent planting instructions, and continue to do well in the yard. A good price, and a good experience. Thanks!
