Where: You’ll find this one growing in front of the Pavilion and this photo shows it aglow in its fall color.
About: Fothergilla gardenii is a terrific little shrub. It only grows to about a meter high and wide, it has fragrant white flowers in the spring. It grows in full sun or partial shade, and it’s quite pest and disease resistant. Best of all though, is its wonderful fall color. Red, green, orange and yellow all at once. The flowering and fall color will be better in sunnier spots, but you’ll still get a nice show in woodland settings.
