Little Henry® Itea virginica 'Sprich' USPP 10,988

 

Little Henry is a useful native plant with lots of potential for the home landscape. It prefers moist soils and will tolerate wet conditions. It will grow in full sun to full shade, and requires little pruning or other maintenance. Little Henry has lightly scented, pure white flowers that shoot like fireworks in the early summer horizon. Its mounded, compact stature makes it an improvement over older varieties such as the old favorite 'Henry's Garnet'. Maturing at less than 3 feet tall, it is suitable for flooding large banks with mass plantings. It is also a delightful addition to the mixed border. Then when you're not expecting anything more from this little wonder its green summer foliage changes to a brilliant multitude of oranges and reds in the fall, making Little Henry a rewarding experience through out all seasons.
