Chinese Sweetspire

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >


(Itea yunnanensis) Glossy leaves and long panicles of white flowers set this sweetspire apart from all the rest. New growth is somewhat serrated, smoothing out as it matures. Can reach 4′-6′ high and wide. Does best in partial sun. Tolerates moist soil conditions. Evergreen in mild winters.
