An unusual plant native to the wooded hills of China and Japan, Clethra barbinervis develops a richly coloured stem which slowly peels to reveal lavender, grey and cream bark. The leaves are pale green and can develop good red, orange and yellow tints in a crisp autumn.
In mid summer racemes of beautiful, fragrant, white flowers appear which are popular with insects and butterflies. A Clethra with year round interest once established.
