Itea (pronounced eye-te-ah) is a flowering shrub that produces gracefully arching 4-inch white flower spires that open from the base to the tip, which results in an exceptionally long bloom time. This plant boasts extraordinary red to burgundy to purple foliage in the fall and persisting well into winter. The nectar filled flowers attract butterflies, but deer steer clear of them. All our Itea Plants for sale are shipped with very well-established root systems. We guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving.
