Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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').

Flowering Months
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.
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.
