The Fothergillas I planted have suffered mightily–from rabbits to drought to drenching rains. I was almost ready to give up on them and chalk it up to Kansas learning. But I love this plant and I knew it would make a wonderful understory shrub layer in the woodland if I could get it started.
Well, patience succeeded. This year, though they are small, they are gorgeous. The white flowers are gleaming in the woodland. They could not be more beautiful. They help give shape to the space.
Thank you Fothergilla!
