Itea Little Henry®



Colorful and Fragrant, Season after Season

Spring to summer blooms, sweet scent, and bright red fall foliage—who could ask for anything more than the multi-season beauty of this native shrub?

Little Henry® is a dwarf Virginia sweetspire, with a dense well-branched habit and plenty of long bottlebrush blooms that shoot off in all directions in late spring and early summer. Lightly fragrant, they attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds into the garden. And this shrub can grow in just about any exposure from full sun to deep shade.

Itea Little Henry® offers soft green foliage in spring and summer, then blazing red leaves in autumn. What a brilliant show to finish the season. This shrub is truly a must-have.
