Grower Notes:

Itea virginica 'Merlot' is commonly referred to as Short N' Sweet™ 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 part of the Short N' Sweet™ series. It 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.
