Little Henry® Itea is a small flowering shrub with beautiful shoots of pure-white scented flowers all summer long. In fall its leaves turn spectacular colors of orange and red. It grows just 2 to 3 feet tall, making it an excellent plant for smaller gardens, or for mass planting in larger ones. It can be grown among other small shrubs to provide flowers in summer, and color in fall. It can also be planted in groups as a ground-cover on banks or along streams. Its fragrant flowers attract butterflies, and your children will love to visit this plant to see these beautiful creatures. The fall coloring is amazing, and as the summer flower clusters resemble fireworks, so the fall coloring resembles a wildfire, so brilliant are the colors.

  • Beautiful scented white flowers in summer
  • Spectacular fall display of oranges and red
  • Very suitable for wet areas in sun or shade
  • Drought tolerant once established
  • Smaller size is ideal for small gardens

Little Henry® Itea can be grown in all kinds of soil, from wet to dry, but it should receive plenty of water until it is well established. It will grow in areas from full sun to full shade, making this one of the most useful plants to grow in every garden. It grows well in both cooler areas and throughout the south. It has no significant pests or diseases and it is not normally eaten by deer. It needs no special care to bring color and interest to your garden for month after month.
