Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Fragrant white bottlebrush flowers adorn this unusual deciduous shrub from late spring to early summer. The broadly rounded leaves of Fothergilla major are it's most striking feature as Autumn turns them to glowing shades of fiery red and orange. Commonly known as the Mountain Witch Alder, this slow growing shrub holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance. Fothergilla major enjoys a rich and leafy ericaceous soil in acid borders, or at the edge of woodland plantings. Although tolerant of light shade, the Mountain Witch Alder is at its best when grown in a sunny position where its colours will be most vibrant. Height: 2.5m (8'). Spread: 2m (6').

Prune Fothergilla plants when dormant, in late winter or early spring. Remove any damaged, diseased or poorly placed stems to maintain an attractive open framework.
Fothergilla plants require ericaceous conditions. Grow Fothergilla in humus-rich, fertile, moist but well drained acid soil. Mountain Witch Alder tolerates a sunny or partially shaded position, but leaf autumn colour will be at its best if grown in full sun.
