Dwarf Fothergilla
Fothergilla gardenenii

Dwarf Fothergilla is a dense compact deciduous shrub. In mid-spring, its flowers are white and resemble a bottle-brush. Fothergilla leaves are rounded and dark green, changing to brilliant yellow to orange-red in the fall. Fothergilla is an excellent shrub for the residential landscape and adds considerable color from April to October. Originally indigenous to the Allegheny Mountains from nothern North Carolina and Tennessee to northern Alabama, Dwarf Fothergilla is disease free and grows between 2 and 3 ft in height and width at a slow rate.

Common Name: Dwarf Fothergilla, Dwarf Witchalder
Type: Deciduous Shrub
Soil Preference: Requires acidic, peaty, sandy loam and is not suitable for limy soils.
Care: Prune as disired. Fothergilla is best used in a shrub border or employed in groupings, masses, and foundation plantings.
Planting Instructions: Dig a hole three times the diameter of the root system, with a depth no deeper than the original soil line on trunk. Break up the soil to the finest consistency possible. Place plant in hole and fill, compacting the fill dirt. Water the plant heavily to seal soil around the roots and remove air pockets. Fertilize according to the recommendation of your local agriculture extension agents, or fertilize based on your own knowledge and experience.
