|Mid-October Itea virginica 'Merlot'|
Itea virginica is also stunning partnered with a cobalt blue pot.
Or, planted in one!
I'm hoping that this new partnership~ cultivar 'Little Henry' and Korean mum 'Ryan's yellow'~ continue to work well together.
|Fall 2009 witchhazel and Sweetspire|
Itea virginica is a beautiful stand alone shrub and in the right spot will colonize and make a stunning year round display, but, each fall when I see it dancing with the golden grasses or complimenting the witch hazels, I know that pairing this plant with a good partner doubles the pleasure.
