Itea, also known as sweetspire, is a low growing native shrub that grows in masses, wild, along lake and stream banks. While it is well adapted to wet soils, it is perfectly at home in the garden. Little Henry sweetspire is a small selection, 2-3 feet tall and as wide, making it suitable for pot culture or today’s smaller gardens. Since it will stand some soggy soil, you can use it in a Rain Garden. Fuzzy-looking, fat white panicles of flowers sway above the foliage in the summer. In the fall, the foliage launches into reds and oranges. It is adaptable to full sun, light shade, or full shade and is hardy to USDA Zone 5.
