Fothergilla

Excellent Adaptability and Year-Round interest

The moderately sized Fothergillas (Wichalder) provides lush white to creamy-yellow, honey-scented spring blooms, blue-green foliage in summer, and eye-catching red, orange, or yellow fall color. The bare branches are very attractive in the winter and makes a great shelter for smaller birds to nest. Fothergillas are pest resistant, easy to grow, and thrive in a variety of soils. They prefer well-drained solis.
