SWEET SUMMER is remarkable for its about 20 - 25 cm long, dense, cone shaped panicles. The sterile flowers are at first green, then white, and finally pink, and bloom progressively from the bottom to the top, the flowers thus offer a pretty layering. The very small fertile flowers are naturally hidden. The flowers renew themselves all summer long. the shrub simultaneously carries panicles of all three shades.
The flower stems are strong and stay well upright, without dropping due to the weight of the panicles in full bloom.
The heads can be used as cut or dried flowers.
In autumn, the foliage turns from yellow to purple red.
Bloom occurs on current season’s growth, so prune as needed in late winter.
