Hi,

I've got the urge to plant Henry's Garnet Itea (Virginia sweetspire) to replace a dead bush; and I don't think I can wait till late summer/autumn to do this :)

Would last week of April be a good time to plant Henry's Garnet? (I'm in Baltimore, MD.)

Thank you,
Sasha

Sasha in zone 7b you can grow just about anything, if you can work the soil it should be fine to plant. Great looking plant!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I haven't seen it in person, but I love the pictures, and the fact that it's resilient, and attracts butterflies!
