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.

So cool!

I have to admit that I had not only never seen a fothergilla, I had never heard of one. But last year, I decided , Why not." It fit what I was looking for-height, sun requirements, etc. Well, in the last week it put on its first bloom. The puffy, white flower is so adorable that neighbors are asking, "What is that?" I love being a trend setter.
