Click To Enlarge

This offering is for single plants of this variety. These are growing in 2.5 inch containrs.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Part shade locations usually produce better blue foliage with a more open plant habit. Prefers moist, acidic, organically rich soils with sharp drainage. Plants may spread by root suckers to form colonies if suckers are not promptly removed.

‘Blue Shadow’ is a compact, slow growing, upright, deciduous shrub that features striking, glaucous, powder blue leaves. It was discovered as a bud sport from a young plant of Fothergilla ‘Mount Airy’. It typically grows to 4-6’ tall and as wide over the first 10 years. Terminal, bottlebrush-like spikes (to 2” long) of tiny, apetulous, honey-scented, white flowers bloom for several weeks in early spring (April to early May). Flower color comes from the showy stamens (white filaments and yellowish anthers). Leathery, broad-elliptic leaves (to 4” long) are a striking blue to blue-green throughout the growing season, changing in fall to outstanding and often brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow. Zones 5 to 8.
