Plant of the Week: Henry’s Garnet Sweetspire

Hi all.  How are you on this glorious Spring day??

I’ve decided Henry’s Garnet Sweetspire is this week’s Plant of the Week.  This is an awesome little shrub that is very much underused in our landscapes.  It’s a hybrid of the Florida native Sweetspire, Itea virginica, and it’s on the list of Florida Friendly Plants.  What’s not to love about this little guy?  It grows 3-4′ tall x 4-6′ wide.  Blooms fragrant, white bottlebrush-type flowers in the Spring. Has no serious bug or disease problems.  And its leaves turn a red/garnet color in the fall.  Too cool!  It loses its leaves in the winter, likes sun/part shade, and can adapt to either regular water situation in a garden or to wet areas.  It’s a very versatile little plant.  Don’t you have a place in your garden for a low maintenance, flowering shrub??
