Mt. Airy Fothergilla

Multiple seasons of interest in a native cultivar
Enjoy multiple seasons of interest with Mt. Airy Fothergilla, a cultivar of a deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States. This fothergilla's native roots mean that it will perform splendidly in southern gardens and in clay soil, but is still hardy enough to thrive in Zone 5. Mt. Airy was bred by the Mt. Airy Arboretum in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sweetly fragrant, bottle-brush flowers in fluffy white decorate this ornamental shrub in springtime, offering a sweet and honeyed scent. In fall, the foliage turns vibrant, in hot shades of orange and red. A true all-season plant!
