Large Fothergilla Cultivar

The native Fothergilla species were choice but scarcely available garden shrubs when Woodlanders first began to offer them in 1980. This selection found by Dr. Mike Dirr in Mt. Airy Arboretum in Cincinnati, OH is now widely grown and available. It has been called a variety of Fothergilla gardenii but is more likely a F. major or possibly a hybrid. An excellent garden shrub with large white bottlebrush flowers and excellent yellow/orange/red fall color. Plant in sun or semi-shade in good well-drained soil.
