Itea virginica 'SMNIVMM'

Breeder
Buy Fizzy Mizzy™ Sweetspire online. Itea is beloved for so many reasons: it's native, shade tolerant, deer resistant, has handsome foliage, amazing fall color, very showy flowers, and of course, delicious fragrance. Fizzy MIzzy™ is an unconventional Itea noted for its numerous, heaven-facing white flower spikes in late spring. A neat and tidy habit in a container and in the garden, this native shrub has thick, dark-green leaves that contrast nicely with the lightly fragrant blooms.
