Little Henry Itea is a deciduous shrub that gets about two feet tall and wide. Its green foliage turns red, orange, and gold in the fall. The very pronounced white flowers appear in June and will typically last through July. The plant likes to be in full sun and can take wet conditions. The best use of this plant is in a mass planting to take advantage of its Fall color and flowers. If left unchecked, the plant will spread out by root suckers and will fill in an area rather nicely. It has no serious disease or insect problems which make it a great addition to your landscape.
