Sweet Pepperbush 'Ruby Spice'

Sweet pepperbush is native to eastern North America. Shrubs grow 4 to 6 feet tall and prefer shaded locations. This variety has fluffy rose-pink flowers that appear in narrow, upright spikes throughout the shrub. Flowers give off a sweet aroma and attract bees and butterflies. In the fall, capsules filled with seeds appear where flowers once were.
