Finally going to a Good Home!
My good buddy Ian stopped by after work today, he said that he had a good home for this Distylium racemosum that I've been torturing in this same pot for 15 years! I decided it was finally time to let it go to a better home :)

Clethra fargesii
We picked Clethra fargesii up a few years ago simply because it was a Clethra that we did not have. It's leaf and growth habit is very similar to Clethra barbinervis However it outshines its cousin when it comes to Autumn Colours.
