This unusual hardy shrub will certainly draw attention in your borders. Throughout summer, Itea virginica is decorated with drooping panicles of scented, creamy white flowers. Each panicle blooms from the base to its tip, making the flowers seem to last for weeks on end. Commonly known as Sweet Spire, this deciduous shrub has a spreading, mound forming habit. Its green foliage turns to brilliant shades of red and purple as autumn sets in. Itea virginica requires a moist, acid soil - perfect for woodland edges or as a specimen shrub in acid borders. Height: 2m (6',5"). Spread: 1.5m (5').
