Dwarf fothergilla (Fothergilla gardenii). This two- to three-foot plant has definite three-season appeal. In April the honey-scented flowers, resembling little bottlebrushes, appear before the foliage. The leathery dark green leaves become one of nature's truly glorious sights in fall; the colors range from bright yellow to orange to scarlet all combined on the same leaf.
Fothergilla grows best in acid, peaty, sandy loam. It tolerates partial shade, but for great fall coloration it needs full sun. It also needs good drainage. Hardy in USDA Zones 5 to 8
