  • Description

    Sweetspire (Itea virginica) is a rounded, spreading, fragrant shrub, coveted by bees and butterflies for its drooping spires of fragrant white flowers. Its arching branches hold leaves through the fall to prolong its beautiful autumn color. Sweetspire can be grown in a large variety of conditions due to its tolerance for shade, erosion, clay, and damp soil. It does quite well in a rain garden.

    Sweetspire has high wildlife value, as it provides food for many types of pollinators, as well as creating protection for birds and small mammals with its closely knit branches. Its adaptability, beauty, and high wildlife value make Sweetspire one of the most popular native shrubs out there.
