Fothergilla x intermedia Proven Winners® Color Choice® Legend of the Fall®

Bottlebrush

This nifty native shrub has the best fall color of any bottlebrush, which is really saying something for a plant that's already well known for being an autumn beauty. In spring, honey-scented white flowers appear. Bottlebrush is one of the most shade tolerant landscape shrubs and thrives even in hot climates. It's a very nice choice for planting under trees.
