Description
A hardy, deciduous shrub with narrowly, dark green leaves to 10cm (4") long, turning red to purple to provide stunning autumn colour. An upright, arching shrub covered with fragrant, small creamy white flowers in dense, erect racemes in May and June. Itea virginica requires a moist, acid to neutral soil - perfect for woodland edges or as a specimen shrub in acid borders. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 1.5m (5').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Itea in fertile, slightly acid soil. Sweet Spire enjoys moist, well drained conditions that don’t dry out in summer. Choose a position in part shade with shelter from cold, dry winds.
More Info
Feed and water Itea plants regularly until fully established. Prune Itea after flowering, cutting back to strong buds. Mature specimens can be further pruned to remove a quarter of the old stems from the base of the plant. Although perfectly hardy when mature, young Itea plants will appreciate a deep, dry mulch to protect the roots in winter.
