The Pink Spires Summersweet is a broad, upright deciduous shrub that typically grows to about 6 feet tall and wide, with attractive dark-green foliage that turns golden yellow in fall. It blooms through the late summer into early fall, with 6-inch spikes of scented flowers that are darker pink in bud and lighter pink when they open. This is a selection of an American wild shrub, and very attractive to butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Grow it in shrub beds, along streams and beside ponds, and in woodland areas.

  • Ideal shrub for late summer blooming
  • Dark spikes of rose-pink buds and pink flowers
  • Terrific choice for shady beds and beneath trees
  • Magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies
  • A selection of a plant native to America

The Pink Spires Summersweet grows in everything from full sun to full shade, and it is hardy even in zone 3. It thrives in most soils, doing best in damper areas, making it ideal for wet and shady spots. It normally isn’t bothered by pests or diseases, and deer leave it alone. A simple trim in late winter or early spring will keep it compact and tidy. Don’t trim in early summer, as this will stop it blooming.
