Itea virginica 'Henry's Garnet'

Genus: Itea.

Species: Itea virginica.

Low, wide-spreading variety of Virginia Sweetspire. Sometimes there is branch die-back after a hard winter but is hardy overall. Can turn yellow if soil is not acidic enough. Attractive flowers and fall color, considered one of the best varieties.
