    Product Description

    Little Henry provides a long, exciting, multi–season show in a small package. Bottlebrush plumes of white flowers appear all over the plant and lure in butterflies. Then, as the weather cools in fall, the green foliage completely changes to vibrant garnet red. This deciduous shrub is rarely on the menu for deer. Little Henry Sweetspire ships now, as a more established plant in a gallon–sized pot. It's an easy addition to spruce up a summer border. Itea virginica 'Little Henry' PP10988
