Growing & Maintenance Tips for Itea virginica Love Child®

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. Mulch is a good idea. Plant in full shade, full sun or anywhere in between.
