Love Child® Sweetspire

Itea virginica 'Bailteaone' PP31,318

Blooming in spring with white racemes radiating out from a rounded plant with bright green foliage. The fragrance is lovely and in autumn the foliage turns gorgeous shades of burgundy. The small size makes it perfect for smaller gardens and foundation plantings. A versatile shrub for sun or shade. Thrives in moist soil but somewhat drought tolerant too. Deer resistant.
