Hummingbird Summersweet is a densely branched deciduous shrub native to the South.  Its glossy dark green leaves have attractive shades of yellow to golden brown in fall.  Sweetly fragrant rosy-pink flower spikes bloom late summer and give way to brown seedpods that last to winter.  Prefers part sun and acidic, moist, well-drained soil.
