Why Mount Airy Fothergilla?

With beautiful colors, abundant flowers and robust growth, the Mount Airy Fothergilla deserves its spot in the limelight - and in your landscape!

Its winning features include white bottlebrush flowers that exude a honey scent, paired with multicolored fall foliage. In spring, birds, bees and butterflies will congregate around the fragrant blooms, and in summer, its bluish-green leaves provide a vibrant backdrop. In fall, you can expect gold, orange, red, and purple displays before the shrub sheds its leaves.

This medium-sized shrub grows between 3-6 feet tall and 3-5 feet wide, adding height, volume, and character to a hedge, hillside, or garden bed. This variety tends to be a slower grower, but its flowers are impressive - making it perfect for delivering big landscape impact in small spaces.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Dig a hole large enough to accommodate your shrub's root ball, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots. Generally, the Mount Airy prefers well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 6 hours of sunlight) per day. It's not tolerant of alkaline soils, so consider amending the planting area with compost.

2. Watering: Let your soil dry to the touch down to about 2 inches in between waterings. Once your soil is dry, give your shrub a deep watering at the base.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize at the beginning of every spring with a well-balanced blend, and follow label instructions for best results.

4. Pruning: Remove suckers as they grow to prevent overspreading. Prune after blooming in spring to control your shrub's shape and size.

Only time can tell

This plant came to my place wonderfully: strong stem with buds ready for the next year. However, nothing much happen so I will have to wait to see if it can thrive or not.
