Product Description

Sweet summertime fragrance. We sniffed dozens of different sweetspires in pursuit of the most fragrant variety, and we can say with confidence that we've found it in Scentlandia™ itea. Though this native plant is much beloved for its sweetly scented summer blooms, not all plants exhibit equally strong fragrance, so it was our primary goal in introducing our next variety. We also wanted a smaller variety that works with any size landscape, and outstanding fall color so that the plant stays interesting beyond its bloom time. Scentlandia™ sweetspire delivers on all three! The flowers aren't just longer, larger, and more fragrant than other varieties - they're also more cold tolerant, assuring a good display even in USDA zone 5 where flower buds are frequently damaged. Itea is one of the most shade tolerant flowering shrubs and thrives even in wet soils, making it an excellent problem solver.

    Plants were - as usual - delivered in excellent condition, well packed and packaged, and arrived far faster than expected. They're responding well to being houseplants for a week+ in our crazy spring weather, with new growth pacing at a reasonable, sustainable level I'm totally comfortable with and happy little root systems starting to suggest I may need to up-pot. So pleased these were available from Hirt's! I've never had problems with a Hirt's order and consider them to be the nearest possible to a sure-thing in the gardening world, and expect these charming little sweetspire bushes to be the same. Outstanding, as always!
