We have just put in a patio and some planting areas to encircle it. Among other things available this time of year at the nursery here I found Summersweet bushes. I ended up (accidentally) with two larger bushes and one (that I meant to get) smaller one. The smaller one is/was in bloom and I now wonder whether I need to cut the spent blooms to make it bloom some more? Or does it just bloom once? The two larger varieties have bloom stalks that don't appear to have opened yet... I wonder what they are waiting for?
Hope someone can advise!
