Plant Features

The Scentlandia® sweetspire is a fragrant marvel in the garden landscape. Native and shade-loving, this iteration stands out with its exceptional cold hardiness, promising a consistent aromatic allure even in chillier regions.

As summer unfolds, the Scentlandia® itea's distinct scent sets it apart. While all sweetspires charm with their aroma, this variety intensifies the olfactory experience. Beyond its scent, the plant's compact stature and adaptability are noteworthy, thriving even in shaded or damp soils.

Scentlandia's modest size makes it perfect for perennial gardens. This compact offshoot of the Virginia sweetspire blends fragrant blooms with a vibrant autumnal hue, making it a garden essential.
