Little Henry Sweetspire

Provides a long, multi-season show
Little Henry is a big performer in a small package. Its exciting, multi-season show begins as bottlebrush plumes of white flowers appear all over the plant. After the blooms vanish and autumn's cool weather appears, the green foliage transforms to become vibrant garnet red. This deciduous shrub attracts butterflies and other beneficial pollinators with its appealing blooms, but tends not to entice foraging deer. A great plant for adorning a summer border. Now shipping, as a more established plant in a gallon pot. PP10988
