Clethra

‘Novacleein’

PP27,590

Over the years Albert Einstein has become synonymous with two things; his intellectual genius and those distinctively unkempt locks. This outstanding new Clethra is a nod to both. Einstein™ Clethra is an exceptional introduction with long white racemes of blooms reaching up to 12” long – an unprecedented length for a Summersweet shrub! The blooming stems are often twisted and curled from weight of the blossoms, reminiscent of Albert Einstein’s wild coiffeur. The flowers are sweetly fragrant which attracts pollinators and humans alike. This shrub is native throughout the eastern US, tolerant of a wide variety of growing conditions and extremely hardy. This shrub will make a brilliant addition to any garden.
