Fothergilla major is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner, producing white fragrant bottle-like flowers in spring before the foliage appears. This shrub's most striking feature is its foliage, in autumn it changes colour to varying tones of fiery-red, purple, orange and yellow creating a spectacular display of rich colour. This low maintenance variety excels when planted in a border and grown in sunny positions. Height and spread 2m. 25cm plants supplied in a 2 litre pot.
