Enjoy the scent of sweet pepperbush

clethra crop

Sweet pepperbush is beginning to blossom along the back roads of Rhode Island’s “South County.”

Also known as Clethra anifolia, pepperbush’s flowers are among the most fragrant of summer. Beekeepers treasure honey from pepperbush nectar because it is so unusual and delicious.

Pepperbush is especially abundant near Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge in South Kingstown, RI, a perfect place for a walk now.
