Clethra alnifolia 'Pink Spires'
Pink Spires Summersweet

Summersweet (also known as Sweet Pepperbush) occurs in various cultivar forms, with 'Pink Spires' being the standard for pink inflorescence color (as shown here). Of the two other common pink-flowering cultivars, 'Rosea' is pink in bud but fades quickly upon opening, and 'Ruby Spice' is a newcomer that holds great promise as an intense dark pink selection.
