||Fothergilla gardenii is smaller than Fothergilla major in height,leaf, flower size. It prefers rich moist sunny locations where it will bloom profusely in late March just before the foliage flushes out. The flowers are white and look like puff-balls on the terminal end of each branch. This species will colonize by its stolons but, does this slowly. Considered quite rare in nature and offers some of the best fall foliage on a mature sized plant approximately 3'High x 4'Wide. Occasionally taller.
