Description

Fothergilla x intermedia, commonly known as 'Legend of the Small' Fothergilla, is a deciduous shrub that belongs to the Hamamelidaceae family. It is native to the southeastern United States and is valued for its attractive features. Here are some key characteristics of Fothergilla x intermedia:

  1. Size: As the common name suggests, 'Legend of the Small' Fothergilla is a compact and smaller species compared to Fothergilla major. It typically grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet and has a similar spread.

  2. Leaves: The leaves are simple, alternate, and have an attractive blue-green color. In the fall, the foliage undergoes a brilliant transformation, displaying shades of yellow, orange, and red.

  3. Flowers: One of the main attractions of Fothergilla 'Legend of the Small' is its unique and fragrant bottlebrush-like flowers. These white, bottlebrush-shaped blooms appear in spring, typically around April or May, before the leaves fully emerge.

  4. Fragrance: The flowers of Fothergilla 'Legend of the Small' emit a pleasant, honey-like fragrance, adding to its appeal.

  5. Growth Habit: The shrub has a rounded and dense growth habit, forming a neat and well-behaved shape in the landscape.

  6. Sun Requirements: Dwarf Fothergilla prefers partial shade to full sun. While it can tolerate a range of light conditions, it often performs well in areas with some protection from intense afternoon sun.

  7. Soil Preferences: It thrives in moist, well-drained, acidic soils. Like many plants in the Hamamelidaceae family, Fothergilla gardenii appreciates acidic soil conditions.

  8. Wildlife Attraction: The flowers attract pollinators such as bees, and the overall structure of the shrub provides cover for wildlife.

  9. Landscape Use: Fothergilla 'Legend of the Small' is commonly used in landscaping as an ornamental shrub. It is suitable for small gardens, mixed borders, or as a focal point in the landscape.

  10. Low Maintenance: Once established, 'Legend of the Small' Fothergilla is relatively low-maintenance. Regular watering during dry periods and occasional pruning to maintain shape are typically sufficient.

This shrub is well-suited for gardens in zones 5 to 9. As with any plant, it's advisable to check with local nurseries or horticultural experts to ensure that it is well-suited to your specific climate and growing conditions.
