Mt. Airy Fothergilla. One of the true great selections of native flowering shrubs, with a multi-stem suckering habit, reaching 5-6'. It produces terminal spikes of white, fragrant honey scented, apetalous flowers which appear to be little cottony balls at the tips of each stem. Summer foliage is a bluish green with a fall color of yellows, oranges, apricots and reds over many weeks. This is a selection of Dr. Mike Dirr from Mt. Airy Arboretum, Cincinnati, OH. It does well for us in sun or shade, and even in shade we have the vivid fall colors.
