SCENTLANDIA® SWEETSPIRE

Buy Scentlandia® 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. So how could we improve it? Better hardiness, for one, so that even gardeners in the colder parts of its hardiness zone can enjoy the scent, year after year. Compact habit and multi-season interest.
