Little Henry Sweetspire - June 2022
Early Sumer is peak Sweetspire season. We have a trio of Little Henry Sweetspire (Itea virginica 'Sprich') planted in a little border by our front walk. I posted a VERY SIMILAR photo almost exactly one-year-ago when these were in bloom in June 2021.
Below, you can see the peak bloom season for these flowering shrubs. And, you'll also see the Saratoga Ginko that we planted last month peeking out in the middle.
Last year, I applied some fast-acting iron to help darken these up and if I have that bag on hand, I'll do the same this week.
These were planted in 2017 as part of our pre-move-in landscape planting. That means they've had five growing season with 2022 being the sixth.
