Old fashioned heirloom garden shrub with strawberry/citrus scented blooms. Known in parts Appalachia as "Sweet Betsy" or "Bubby". Excellent near a window of door or in a moon or fragrance garden where one can "aromatically explore" its wonderfully scented and delightful blooms.
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade although somewhat taller in shade than in sun. Tolerant of a wide range of soils, but prefers rich loams. Prune immediately after flowering to shape and maintain compactness. Tends form colonies in the natural garden.
MoonBranch Botanicals specializes in offering the highest quality fresh and dried botanicals, teas and live plants native to the great eastern hardwood forest of North America.
Please note: Plants native to temperate climates, especially those shipped bare-root, are generally best transplanted during the cooler months (October - March) while in or near a state of dormancy. While we make every attempt to ship as needed by our customers, please realize that there is a greater risk of transplant loss during the hot Summer months. Also realize that many species may lose their above ground portions the current season while the roots remain alive, producing new growth the following Spring.
