Little pruning is required – prune after flowering if desired. Avoid cutting into thick stems unless removing them entirely, as recovery will be slow.
Legend of the Small™ Bottlebrush
A true, small-leaf, small-stature Fothergilla x intermedia from Tom Ranney and his team at NCSU. After trialing about a dozen of his selections, this was the clear winner in terms of vigor, flower power, and fall color. It produces an abundance of bottle brush-like white flowers, has a well-branched mounded habit, and small bluish-green leaves that turn an attractive blend of yellow, orange, and red in autumn.
