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.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”
