Sweetspire (Itea virginica) Another native, this is one of my top ten shrubs for fall color. White spring flowers, dark red winter stems, and fall colors ranging through burgundy, red, orange and yellow. They tolerate wet areas, shade and deer, and stay relatively short. And while not evergreen, I do often see plants arrive on the nursery in early spring with several burgundy leaves from last fall still hanging on. Neat! ~ Miri, Behnke's Woody Plant Buyer Spring Flower
Itea virginica 'Henry's Garnet'
Little Henry itea has the most fabulous fall color (and this is in addition to its delightfully fragrant summer flowers!). Why should trees get to have all the fun?! emfl.us/glGd
