Clethra are very easy to grow and maintain and is both happy in full sun but will also tolerate full shade so it's a great choice for those awkward shady corners. It prefers acidic soil so we recommend incorporating plenty of peat or ericaceous compost for best results, especially when growing in a container.
Easy to care for needing just an occasional light trim to shape, these are trouble free but offering big rewards!
