The Creative Gardener – Little Henry Sweetspire

Most gardeners are just too busy to spend all of their time in their gardens or landscapes anymore. I get asked multiple times, whether I am working in my garden center or designing a landscaping for a client, to include dwarf type plants that require little to no maintenance. I will be the first to tell you there is no such plant that requires no maintenance. However, I will tell you about a plant that is pretty close to no maintenance and provides you color multiple times per year.

Little Henry Sweetspire, the exciting dwarf version of Sweetspire, is covered with scented white flowers that shoot off like a sparkler in early summer gardens or landscapes.
