In front of Prospect Hall there is a large mass planting of ‘Henry’s Garnet’ Virginia Sweetspire {Itea virginiana ‘Henry’s Garnet’} that has turned a beautiful shade of red that often lasts well into November. This shrub is of marginal hardiness here in Plymouth and often has some tip dieback in the spring but I think it is a very worthwhile addition because of this fine fall display. In the rear of this same bed is group of ‘Winter Red’ Winterberry that has a large crop of red fruit. While the leaves are still a rich green the contrast is very attractive. The fruit will remain on the plants into the new year long after the leaves drop off.
