Summersweet/ Sweet Pepper Bush
Set out shrubs 5 to 6 feet apart to allow for ultimate spread. A location in sun or light shade, where the soil is moisture-retentive, enriched with organic matter and of slightly acid reaction is best. Perfect for seaside plantings.
If pruning is desired – to attain a hedge effect, for example – plants may be pruned in the early spring. We recommend a summer mulch to conserve moisture and deep watering during periods of drought
