Fothergilla major 'Mount Airy'

Bottlebrushes named after their cylindrical, brush-like flowers aren't particularly well known for their scent, but rather their informal yet alluring autumn colors. As the temperatures cool off in October, Mount Airy Bottlebrush will show off with colors ranging from yellow to orange, red and even purple. Stretching its branches across the hardiness spectrum, this colorful fall shrub is sure to share its harvest-time charm in any setting you choose.
