An extremely showy and easy-to-grow North American native flowering shrub, the Virginia Sweetspire brings outstanding color in both the spring and fall landscape. In late spring to early summer, abundant, long spires up to 6 inches long are packed with fragrant little white flowers the butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to. The spires cascade downwards from the ends of stems on an upright, thickly branched, shrub with gracefully arching branches to around 6 feet tall and equally as wide. Following the flowers are showy copper-orange capsules filled with edible seeds that both you and the songbirds and small mammals can enjoy. In fall, the lustrous green leaves turn to long-lasting, stunning shades of gold, orange and purple. Get all the details below!
