In front of Prospect Hall is a group of ‘Henry’s Garnet’ Virginia Sweetspire {Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet’} that are blooming with 6″ spikes of white flowers. This plant has a suckering habit and spreads slowly. It has wonderful deep red fall foliage that lasts well into November. In the same garden along the curb are several ‘Red Sprite’ Winterberries that have very small white flowers along their stems. We grow this plant for its beautiful displays of red fruit that begin in September and last well into winter.
