Cultivar Notes - 'Blue Shadow'
‘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, honey-scented, white flowers bloom for several weeks in early spring (April to early May). 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.
