  • LITTLE HENRY® Sweetspire

    Our native sweetspire is a very useful plant for Rain gardens and other damp sites. Fragrant summer flowers attract pollinators, and the red fall foliage makes it a good alternative to burning bush. Flowering and fall color may be less pronounced in shade although the plant will grow well. Little Henry® is a dwarf plant that is about half the size of traditional varieties, making it a great choice for smaller landscapes. It may be used for foundation plantings, mixed borders, or planted en masse. It will tolerate clay soil.

  • SCENTLANDIA® Sweetspire

    Fabulously fragrant. Sweetspire is beloved for so many reasons: it’s native, shade tolerant, deer resistant, has handsome foliage, amazing fall color, very showy flowers, and of course, delicious fragrance. So how could Scentlandia® sweetspire improve on the classic? Better hardiness, for one, so that even gardeners in the colder parts of its hardiness zone can enjoy the fragrance, year after year. It also boasts brighter, more consistent fall color, along with a compact, refined habit.
