Description / Mount Airy Fothergilla gardenii Shrub

From its wonderfully fragrant spring blooms to its neon-bright fall foliage, 'Mount Airy' is a delightful shrub that keeps your garden colorful 3 seasons a year and is as easy as pie to grow! The perfect size for a foundation planting, hedge, or accent, this vigorous shrub is one of the most beautiful investments you can make in your year-round landscape!

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.

Very impressed
Review by Misty colleen
I couldn't be happier with my first purchase with wayside. Everything from the packaging, shipping time, and the quality and size of the plants. The fothergilla plants I ordered came in perfect shape and I can not wait to watch them grow! This will for sure not be my last order with them. Thank you wayside gardens!

Review by Randa D.
Before I bought one of these shrubs last year I had never seen a "fothergilla". In fact, I had never even heard of one. But, it fit my requirements, height, sun, etc., so I decided I would give it a try. Well, she put on her first bloom this past week. That puffy, white flower is awesome. I can't wait to see her once she grows and has blooms everywhere.
