One of the best attributes to this tall, blooming beauty is that it’s native. In April, this easy to grow shrub blooms interesting white ball flowers. The flowers on this blooming shrub are perfect for a cut garden, adding an element of texture to any bouquet. They offer a familiar source of nectar for native insects.
This deciduous shrub has an upright dense form. In the spring, the fragrant blooms overtake the shrub. It provides shelter for songbirds and insects as it grows upward with dense foliage. In the fall, appropriately for autumn, this perennial shrub turns shades of yellow, orange and red to welcome in the cold season. It can be a wonderful border plant, and fits anywhere in a landscape with a bold pop of white color in the spring.
Large Fothergilla Plant Care
This native shrub can be planted in full sun or part shade. It’s low maintenance and trouble-free. It prefers moist, well-drained soil. If planted in full sun, be sure to water this plant if a dry stretch is observed. If dwelling in the shade, less supplemental watering will be needed.
The Large Fothergilla should be pruned only after flowering is finished. Damaged branches should be removed or trimmed.
Large Fothergilla Spacing
Fothergilla major can reach four to five feet in height. As it is a dense grower, it should be spaced four to five feet apart.
