ITEA VIR HENRYS GARNET
Grower Notes:

Itea virginica 'Henry's Garnet' is commonly referred to as Henry's Garnet Sweetspire or Virginia Sweetspire. It is a compact, deciduous shrub with arching branches and dark green leaves that take on a reddish tinge in early fall and continue to deepen to dark crimson as the weather cools down. Fragrant white flower spikes cover the plant and occur in May and June attracting bees, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators.

Henry's Garnet Sweetspire thrives in full to partial sun in evenly moist, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Its best coloring occurs with more sun. Strong suckering forms colonies to help it spread. It is ideal for woodland areas, foundations and near waterways. It is often used for erosion control and moist areas with poor drainage.
