A small form of Virginia Sweetspire, Love Child® blooms in spring with white racemes radiating out from a rounded plant with bright green foliage. Selected for its compact growth habit and heavy bloom May through June, this versatile shrub performs in both sun and shade and is perfect for smaller gardens and foundation plantings. An added bonus, the spring fragrance is lovely and the autumn foliage turns gorgeous shades of burgundy, deeper in color than others on the market.
