Just waiting to be planted this coming Spring . . . Check out these new plants!
After all, both my next-door-neighbor-friend and I felt the need to perk ourselves up after the immense, behemoth machinery left our backyards...
Sweetspire "Little Henry"
Itea virginica 'Sprich'
I'm really looking forward to enjoying these little fellows next year. The tag said they thrive in full sun to full shade. Guess I can satisfy those conditions! :-)
It's described as an excellent companion to Hosta and other large-leafed plants. Check!
Enjoys evenly moist to wet soils... (will have to water periodically!) and prefers acidic soils. I can also handle this!
Late Spring/Early Summer brings prolific white blossoms that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Foliage color is a rich green that turns orange- to burgandy-red in the Fall. Oh, Yes!!
'Little Henry' will grow 2-3 feet tall and 3 feet wide. Sounds like a sweet butterball!
It is hardy in Zone 5 (yes!) and is the recipient of the Ohio Nursery Association Plant Selection Award. Good!
If it needs to be pruned at all, it should be done right after it finishes blooming. Guess I can handle that, too.
Over-all, what do YOU think?
