Little Henry Sweetspire

Little Henry Sweetspire

Lures Butterflies to the Landscape

We love this compact shrub, and you will too, for its compact habit and gorgeous color. In late spring to early summer, it bears fragrant, white blooms that almost completely cover the plant, attracting dozens of butterflies to the garden. As summer goes into fall, the glossy, dark green foliage ages to a brilliant garnet red, and then to rich scarlet. Deer-resistant, deciduous shrub grows 18-24 in. tall with a 24-36 in. spread. It performs best when planted in full sun and will tolerate partial shade as well. Little Henry Sweetspire is now available in a handy gallon pot and is shipping now for summer planting. Potted. Zones 5-9. PP10988
  • Zone 5 - 9 with protection
  • Height 2 - 3 feet
