Great for fresh and dried arrangements, a staple of the floral industry. Rather rampant so a poor spot will keep it in check. We will send you 5 plants to insure pollination.

Clethera barbinervis, JAPANESE CLETHERA, Z 5,6,7, Bfly/Brk

Mature height - 15'X6', Growth - Med., Light - S-Psh, Soil - Dry-Med., Origin - Eastern US

Grown as much for its bark as its fragrant flowers. Needs good organic-laden soil, and better is shade in  hotter areas.

Clethera acuminata, CINNAMON CLETHERA, Z 5,6,7,8, Bfly/Brk

Mature height - 8'X6', Growth - Med., Light - S-Psh, Soil - Dry-Med., Origin - Eastern US

A collectors native that proves adaptable to conditions and adds peeling bark and attractive white flowers. Flowers not as fragrant as 'alnifolia' selections but rather showy long strings of white. As it matures we appreciate the bark more and more. Couldn't confirm that they were native or perhaps introduced at a State Park we stayed at in Central WV. The plants without leaves were a standout in early Spring without leaves. Reminded me of a Crepe Myrtle or Paper Bark Maple.
