Uses Notes: 

Plant near a window or outdoor area where you can enjoy its fragrance. Its small stature makes it a nice choice for adding color and scent to perennial gardens. 

Itea is one of the few shrubs that will still flower reasonably well even in shade.

Maintenance Notes: 

Itea needs little maintenance. In spring, after new growth begins to emerge, you can remove any stems that aren't showing signs of life - do not prune until you see signs of new growth.

A 1-2" layer of mulch will help retain moisture.
