Itea oldhamii is an evergreen shrub with compact growth habit. Juvenile leaves can be holly-like but mature leaves are entire. It has racemes of white flowers in late spring. Plant in good soil that is moist but well-drained. In our experience this plant has grown well in semi-shade. It is litte-known in the U.S. and Woodlanders may have been the first nursery to offer this plant to American gardeners.
USDA Hardiness Zone 8-9
