Fothergilla 'Mount Airy'



Description

Fothergilla 'Mount Airy' is most appreciated for its multicolored display of yellows, oranges, and reds in autumn. In spring and summer its foliage is deep blue green. The medium-sized leaves resemble those of witchhazel and clothe this deciduous shrub nearly to the ground. Flowers are borne in April and early May and have a faint honey scent. The small, individual white flowers are held in 1- to 2-inch-high bottlebrush-like spikes. The multiple-stemmed rounded habit of Fothergilla 'Mount Airy' makes it an excellent plant for the shrub border and an effective complement to broadleaf evergreens and early spring bulbs.
