Itea virginica 'Merlot'

Virginia Sweetspire

Itea virginica 'Merlot', Virginia Sweetspire

Cat# 1574 'Merlot' is a very nice dwarf selection of our native Virginia sweetspire. It is very dense and compact, growing to around 3 _' tall and wide. The flower clusters arch and spray above the foliage beautifully. Fall foliage turns deep red. Grow 'Merlot' in moist to average soil in full sun or light shade. This plant in flower or in fall color is a dazzler, and also a butterfly magnet.
