Fothergilla x intermedia ‘Blue Shadow’ PP15,490
This exciting new introduction originated as a branch sport from Fothergilla major ‘Mt. Airy’ and is blessed with the same vigorous constitution and well-structured habit. The most alluring aspect is the striking display of large blue-gray leaves, which develop and intensify as the foliage matures. The ivory white flowers are 1 to 2” long, honey scented, and appear in feather like filaments at the ends of the branches in April-May with the new foliage. An outstanding autumn display of rich yellow, red and orange lasts two to three weeks, usually coming on in late October to November. Blue Shadow is a medium-size deciduous shrub 5 to 6’ high and wide and easily adapts to sun or partial shade. The blue color tends to develop better in the shade, though. It is tolerant to a wide range of soil and environmental conditions, needs little pruning and has no major disease or insect problems. Cold hardiness to USDA zone 4 and heat tolerance to zone 8.
