Welcome to the land of sweet scents!
Scentlandia Sweetspire (Itea virginica ‘SMNIVDFC’) is a new and improved version of a great landscape plant that every garden should have. There are several reasons why:
*Scentlandia is fabulously fragrant. Sweetspire will perfume your garden for many weeks in the summer.
*It is a hardy native, so it doesn’t have the same disease issues and weaknesses that other decorative flowering shrubs have.
*It thrives in either sun or shade.
*It has a fabulous fragrance.
*Deer will leave it alone.
*The foliage is beautiful, even when the shrub isn’t in flower.
*It has amazing fall color.
*More cold hardy than previous versions, so even gardeners in the coldest parts of its hardiness zone can enjoy it.
*Did we mention the fabulous fragrance?
The flowers are a creamy white and are lovely gooseneck spires that come out of the shrub like spiraling fireworks. The leaves turn fantastic shades of ruby red and smoky maroon in the fall, giving the plant a bi-colored look. Outstanding fall color!
It grows up to 3’ tall, so it is perfect for borders and beds. Make sure that you plant it where you can enjoy the flowers in summer, the leaves in the fall and the SCENT! Buy yours today!
