Comments: This native shrub of Alabama and other southeastern states tends to form thickets of somewhat straggly arching shoots and produces creamy-white flowers that consist of a cluster of prominent stamens. The fruit is of little ornamental value. The leaves have double teeth along the margins. This shrub will grow in sunlight to partial shade, and is not too particular about soils.
