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 cultivar featuring handsome 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 heavily textured deep green foliage with whitish undersides and an abundance of fragrant white flowers borne in large terminal clusters.
Size: 5' 0" – 6' 0" high x 5' 0" – 6' 0" wide.
