The Fothergilla gardenii plant is a slow growing shrub. There are two members in the genus, the other being Fothergilla major. The Alabama witch alder (Fothergilla monticola) is usually classified into the major genus.
These ornamental plants are usually grown both for their attractive spring flowers and their colorful autumn leaves.
Plants typically reach about three feet (90 cm) in height. They carry small fragrant flowers on terminal spikes in the spring, and their dark green leaves turn a lovely color in the autumn, ranging from yellow through to bright red.
