More Information

Description If you're looking for a shrub that is a stunner through multiple seasons, look no further than Dwarf Fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii)! White bottlebrush flowers bloom in spring and boast a sweet and spicy fragrance that fills the garden. Thick blue-green leaves fill in during summer and take on brilliant red, orange, and yellow hues as they mature into fall. Dwarf Fothergilla fits this multi-seasonal interest into a small, dense mounded form. Its compact habit makes it an excellent option for hedges and borders. Native to North America, it's easy to grow and fairly low maintenance. Plus, it's deer resistant and drought tolerant. Details Botanical name: Fothergilla gardenii
Common name: Fothergilla, alder, witch alder
Zone: 5 – 8
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 1.5-3′ tall x 2-4′ wide
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green; red and orange fall color
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Hedge, Edging, Landscaping, Wildlife gardens, Native plant gardens
How To Grow Soil: Average, well-draining soil.
Light: Full sun to part sun. Can grow in shade, but flowering will be sparse and plant will not provide as much coverage.
Water: Average, but make sure it has good drainage. Tolerates some dryness.
Spacing: 2-3 feet
Fertilizing: Not required. If more rapid growth is desired, apply an all-purpose fertilizer in spring.
Winterizing: Nothing special required, though a 2-3″ layer of mulch is beneficial.
Maintenance & pruning: Little pruning is required, but if you do wish to prune, do so immediately after flowering. Avoid cutting into thick stems unless removing them entirely, as they are slow to recover.

Growing well!

I purchased 2 of these spring 2021. They survived a zone 5 winter and a dog leash brushing over them every day. There were no blooms this spring but I wasn’t expecting any in their first year. The fall color is beautiful!! I have them in part sun as some of my foundation shrubs.

Hate to leave a rating as it's hard to know where the problem lies. Plants all looked great when they arrived. I planted them all on the same day, on the same tier of the garden. All received the same care. One is dead, one is dying (fingers crossed), and the third is doing well. I'll see how the ill one does and we may reorder.
