Beautiful yellow in fall. Clethra '16 candles'. Likes Shade, fragrant blooms in mid to late summer, yellow fall foliage. Saw a Clethera the other day and there was an audible hum with all the bees and butterflies on it.
Whats better than brilliant autumn foliage when its followed by beautiful spring blooms? Not much! Plant Dwarf Fothergilla this season for its majestic color and enjoy its showy flowers in spring. A bonus is that its deer resistant. (zones 5-9)
