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.

Mount Airy

I love this plant. Put it in the ground before leafing and it produced great white flowers. It was green all summer but in the fall it has been pure magic. beautiful colors and the leaves have stayed on the shrub a long time . I am ordering another one as soon as they come in. Highly recommend.

Great Delivery

The Mount Airy has not come out yet with leaves but the plants arrived in really good shape. I planted them right away and am so excited to watch them this spring.

Growing well right after spring comes

I gave it 4 stars earlier since I did not know how it will turn out. Now the buds are forming, the flowers and leaves start to pop up (absolutely love the leave shape by the way). I am really satisfied with this plant overall. Can't wait till it grows taller and make a difference between me and my neighbors Mount Airy Fothergilla Mount Airy Fothergilla Mount Airy Fothergilla Review

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.
