The show begins in spring, when dainty white blooms (about an inch across) appear, sporting a marvelous honey scent and bright, cheery look. After they pass, the small, neatly veined leaves keep 'Mount Airy' looking lush and beautiful all summer. Then, when the first chill of fall enters the air, the foliage turns ultra-bright shades of golden and orange! Wow!
'Mount Airy' is a sun lover, but is adaptable to partial shade. Reaching 4 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, it is just the right size for a variety of garden uses. Combine it behind your summer-blooming perennials in the border. Versatile and ever-changing, this is a shrub you simply must have!
This Fothergilla thrives in acidic soil well enriched with humus. Space plants about 3 feet apart for dense coverage. Hardy in zones 5-9.
