Plant one for a gorgeous foundation plant in your front yard, or use several in your side yard. They naturalize well and are sure to provide an elegant appearance in those less-civilized areas of your landscape.

Your 'Henry's Garnet' Virginia Sweetspire will wow you with its 6-inch long, dense clusters of white blossoms in June (when many other plants are just getting started). The fragrant beauties last well into summer and are sure to call you in for a closer look, just as it will your hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators.

The flowers reach up above the bright green foliage before gently cascading down for an elegant appearance in your landscape. The oblong leaves transition to a delightful red for fall and often hang on into winter to extend the show.

'Henry's Garnet' Virginia Sweetspire is an upright shrub with a rounded form and an open nature. This Sweetspire won't require a lot of time from you to achieve its naturally beautiful appearance, and is hardy enough to thrive regardless of minor inconveniences. It even naturalizes well.
