ITEA VIR MERLOT
Grower Notes:

Itea virginica 'Merlot' is commonly referred to as Merlot Sweetspire. This native deciduous shrub features a very compact habit and fragrant white flowers in June attracting bees, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators. The leaves turn a beautiful burgundy color in fall and its winter branches are quite colorful.

Merlot Sweetspire is deer resistant and thrives in full to partial shade in rich, moist soils. It will tolerate a wet site and even clay soil. It is ideal for erosion control, rain gardens and any spot that stays moist.
