Price: €11.95

Fothergilla is an unusual shrub with fluffy, creamy-coloured flowers in spring and excellent autumn colour. A compact and slow-growing shrub, it is very suitable for a lightly shaded, smaller garden. It is an ideal plant for a woodland edge or somewhere out of full sunlight. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil, preferably acidic though tolerant of most soil types. It grows to a maximum height and spread of 2 metres. It prefers a humus-rich soil, so add some compost or leaf-mould around the base of the plant when planting and annually. 5 litre container, 2ft tall.  Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.
