Deer Resistant Native Shrubs

  • LEGEND OF THE FALL® Bottlebrush

    Demand more from your fall color display with Legend of the Fall® fothergilla! It lights up with every gorgeous hue a leaf can be, starting with purples and reds, intensifying to oranges and yellows. Happily, it’s not just a one note plant. Its fragrant white flowers in spring are the ideal way to welcome the season, and provide sustenance to pollinators as they wake up or migrate back to the area. A rather neat habit makes this plant easy to work into your landscape or garden. Like other fothergilla, it may put out some suckers, but these can be easily controlled by pulling, cutting, or severing with a sharp spade. Plant in sun, shade, or anywhere in between, but fall color will be most vivid in spots that get at least some sun each day.

    Why grow Legend of the Fall® bottlebrush?

    • Super low maintenance
    • Spring pollinator plant
    • Quite shade tolerant

  • LEGEND OF THE SMALL® Bottlebrush

    Little habit. Little leaves. BIG fall color display. When you consider that a typical fothergilla can reach around 10 feet tall and wide, you might be rather shocked to learn that Legend of the Small® only grows to a third of that size. You get all the vibrant, eye-popping, jaw-dropping fall color, but in a manageable package. Plant it in the middle of your border or as a low hedge and watch it show off from spring until late fall. Spring is for milky white, bottlebrush shaped flowers, summer is for blue-green matte foliage, and fall is for the explosion of yellow, orange, and red leaf color. Like other fothergilla, it may put out some suckers, but these can be easily controlled by pulling, cutting, or severing with a sharp spade. Plant in sun, shade, or anywhere in between, but fall color will be most vivid in spots that get at least some sun each day.

    Why grow Legend of the Fall® bottlebrush?

    • Very small habit
    • Spring pollinator plant
    • Quite shade tolerant
