The Little Henry Sweetspire features elegant, slender spikes of fragrant white flowers that emerge in late spring and continue through summer. These delicate blossoms attract butterflies and hummingbirds, creating a lively and enchanting display in your garden. The sweet fragrance of the flowers fills the air, enhancing the sensory experience of your outdoor space.
The foliage of the Little Henry Sweetspire is equally captivating. The elongated, dark green leaves create a lush backdrop for the vibrant flowers. As fall approaches, the foliage transforms into stunning shades of orange, red, and purple, providing a captivating autumnal show. This multi-season interest adds depth and beauty to your landscape throughout the year.
Growing to a compact height of 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) with a similar spread, the Little Henry Sweetspire is well-suited for smaller gardens, containers, or as a low hedge. Its compact size and mounding habit make it an excellent choice for border plantings or as a focal point in mixed beds. The shrub is also adaptable to a variety of soil conditions and can tolerate both full sun and partial shade.
