The 'Mount Airy' dwarf fothergilla shrub has an upright growth habit and reaches 3 to 5 feet in height, with a similar width. In spring, this shrub is tipped with white flowers (1 to 3 inches long) that have the appearance of little bottlebrushes, which is why "bottlebrush" is another common name for the shrub. The flowers, which bloom in mid- or early spring, smell a bit like licorice. The leaves will remind you of witch hazel, to which Fothergilla gardenii is related (they both belong to the Hamamelidaceae family, along with, for example, Loropetalum and Persian ironwood). The irregularly shaped, ovate leaves are toothed along their margins and 2 to 4 inches long. In summer, on top, they are dark green; the undersides are bluish-gray.View full details
