Ornamental Characteristics: Fothergilla is a beautiful four-season shrub. In spring, 1 to 2-inch long, white, bottlebrush-like flowers appear before the leaves. Flowers release a spicy, honey fragrance while in bloom. The blue-green leaves turn a striking, yellow to scarlet color in the fall, often with combinations of colors on one leaf.
