A Problem Solver
Once upon a time in the land of Scentlandia™, there was the perfect shrub. Fabulously fragrant, sun or shade tolerant, showy white bottle-brush flowers, deer resistant, handsome foliage turning blazing red in fall…it will live happily ever after with its multi-season interest. Itea is one of the most shade-tolerant flowering shrubs and Scentlandia™ is sweetly compact to work well in any sized landscape. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.
