Red spots on Itea are usually a sign of a fungal disease but you might want to take a few of the leaves in for positive diagnosis before using a fungicide on your plant. Master Gardener Clinics, your local Cooperative Extension Office, or even a well staffed nursery can help diagnose the problem and suggest control measures. Best wishes with your Itea!
