Discover the beauty of Itea virginica, also known as the Virginia Sweetspire. Known for its stunning early summer blooms and brilliant fall hues, this deciduous to semi-evergreen shrub is a true beauty in any landscape. Growing 3' to 6' tall, the multistemmed shrub blooms in the summer, bearing delicate white flowers on arching stems. It's the mixture of yellow, orange, crimson, and maroon that steal the show in fall, making this shrub truly spectacular and long-lasting. The Virginia Sweetspire's mound-shaped and slender branches make it an attractive ornamental shrub, especially effective in mass plantings. Besides its aesthetic appeal, Itea virginica displays excellent hardiness, tolerating temperatures as low as -20 degrees F. It thrives best in full sun to partial shade and in fertile, moist soils, proving its drought tolerance once established. Other features include its resistance to pests, and deer, its attraction to butterflies and its alternate leaf arrangement with finely serrated leaf margins. It is also known for its amazing propagation capabilities by seed or cuttings. Overall, the Itea virginica or Virginia Sweetspire is not just a shrub, but an opportunity to bring color and life to your garden.
