Forthergilla major

Fothergilla major, commonly known as “Large Witch Alder” or “Mountain Witch Alder,” is a deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States. It is cherished for its stunning display of fragrant, bottlebrush-like white flowers that bloom in early spring before its foliage emerges.

The leaves of Fothergilla major are blue-green and turn brilliant shades of orange, red, and yellow in the fall, offering a final burst of colour to the landscape. It thrives in partial shade to full sun, making it a versatile addition to gardens, borders, or woodland landscapes.

Gardeners appreciate Fothergilla major for its low maintenance requirements, and its ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. Its striking flowers, vibrant autumn foliage, and ease of care make it a popular choice for adding beauty and interest to gardens throughout the year.
