Additional Information

Introduced to the nursery trade in 1982 by the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College. The original was part of a group of seedlings collected in Georgia and passed to the arboretum by Josephine Henry of Gladwyne, Pa. Dr. Michael Dirr suggested the arboretum name this particular seedling. Henry’s refers to Josephine Henry and Garnet refers to Swarthmore’s school color (not the shrub’s fall foliage).
