VA Sweetspire: Itea, 'Henry's Garnet' 4" Pot
I got sweetspire for our garden from the recommendation of a highly respected grower in VA. I wasn't expecting much as it's an unassuming looking flower in photos but it's one of my absolute favorites from all the varieties we planted several years ago. Adds a beautiful, rich fall foliage show with some of the deepest colored leaves in the fall. The flowers are so unique and beautiful, on the plant or as a cut. (Adds an amazingly elegant touch to our mixed bouquets.) It has beautiful white draping flowers, incredible fall foliage, a native, and easy to grow. Virginia Sweetspire prefers moist, rich, slightly acidic humusy soils in partial sun to partial shade, but tolerates a wide range of soil conditions and pHs. Another must have for the garden!
