Fothergilla x intermedia 'Blue Shadow'

 

White honey-scented flowers at branch tips on a nicely mounded habit of icy blue-green foliage. Weeks of stunning fall colors of red, orange and yellow. Provides unique color to the landscape as a foundation plant, in mixed shrub borders, or in mass plantings. Produces best bloom and color in full sun, but adapts to some shade.

Joseph's Take

Interestingly enough, I only recently became aware of Blue Shadow Fothergilla. A very fragrant deciduous shrub that basically has three completely different looks, beautiful spring flowers, interesting greenish blue textured leaves in summer, and truly amazing fall color. It’s one of my favorites these days!
