Itea virginica is a delightful shrub with alternate, simple leaves, on arching stems. The flowers are fragrant and white, usually borne in early summer. It is a deciduous to semievergreen shrub and grows from 3' to 6' tall. It is a multistemmed, spreading and colonizing plant. The stems branch infrequently except at the tops. We usually carry 'Henry's Garnet' and 'Little Henry', as well as the species.
