This is commonly found in swamps, bogs and wet lowlands but can also be found at some higher elevations in the Appalachians. White to pale pink, fragrant flowers have emerged as May-July. Dark green leaves turn yellow, orange and purple in the fall. This species will tolerate wet soils even with poor drainage, growing 3-5’ tall. It will help to acidify the soil before planting and later if needed and adding a good mulch will be beneficial. Clip off spent flowers soon after blooming.

Sun, Semi-shade, Wet, Acidic Soil, Late Spring – Early Summer, 3-5’ Tall, Zones 4-9

Size: Gallon Pot 6-10"
