New Jersey Tea
These young plants appreciate some extra attention during their their first 3 years in your landscape. Some do well in clay while others do not. During June and July this low-growing, rounded shrub is a cloud of white flowers. New Jersey tea is used in masses for best effect, as a tall ground cover, or on steep slopes. While the flowers are remarkable on their own, it is also nectar source and a caterpillar and larva host, attracting an array of beautiful butterflies. Can grow up to 3-5 ft. Plant two to three feet apart to create a low-growing, drought-tolerant native hedge. Full sun to partial sun.
