Garden Plant: Fothergilla Mount Airy
Product Description: Fothergilla Mount Airy
Great 3- Season Performance for Your Garden Mount Airy Fothergilla will be a stand-out performer in your home landscape.
For starters, this vigorous shrub grows up to 5′ tall.
In the spring, it is covered in white, bottle-brush shaped flowers that smell vaguely of honey and vanilla.
When the flowers fade, Mount Airy has beautiful green and blue-gray leaves all summer.
In the fall the leaves turn exciting shades of yellow, orange and red-purple – sometimes all on one leaf! Mount Airy makes a huge impression when planted in small groups and is jaw-dropping when planted in large groups.
Use it as a foundation planting or a dividing hedge.
Plant it with purple leaved companions like Royal Purple Smoke Bush or Purple Leaf Plum for a beautiful modern show in spring and fall.
For a more classic approach, pair it with Rhododendrons and Azaleas, which love the same type of soil and light conditions and have been Fothergilla companion plants for generations.
This well-loved plant will add color and texture to your garden throughout the year.
