Fothergilla major ‘Mount Airy’ partial shade

Originating in the Southeast, deciduous Fothergilla bears the name of a British physician who specialized in growing American plants. Selected by Mike Dirr, ‘Mount Airy’ is an outstanding new cultivar featuring attractive leaves, good-sized blooms and consistently spectacular red, orange and yellow autumn color.

Possibly a hybrid between Fothergilla gardenii and Fothergilla major, this vigorous upright shrub has handsome, heavily textured deep green foliage with whitish undersides and an abundance of fragrant white flowers borne in large terminal clusters.

Blooms April–May.

Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high x 5' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
