Item #47010


The most colorful foliage!

Fill your garden with sweet fragrance!

'Henry's Garnet' Sweetspire will begin to bloom from late spring until early summer but will continue to delight you with true colors of nature through the fall. Early in the season the shrub will bloom with a descending amount of white blooms against a lavishingly stunning color of olive green foliage. Watch as the beauty of the white summer blooms gradually change into a rosy pink color as the fall approaches, ending in a final beauty of red at the end of the season. The mound shaped shrub will grow to a maximum of 4 feet in height with a maximum of 6 feet in width. Enjoy observing as the 6 inch blooms make a great place for the butterflies and hummingbirds to gather. Plant them in full sun or in partially shaded areas utilizing them as hedges, in flower beds or watch them prosper into beauty as they grow inside large containers on the terrace of your apartment.
