October portraits of
Fothergilla x. 'Mount Airy'
'Mount Airy' is a hybrid Fothergilla
with intensified vibrancy for its autumn color, shown in
a close-up of a yellow & pink leaf in October (2005)
which is merely one of its many "moods" of color.
Here is a detail of the same shrub
in early November (2003). The colors can vary dramatically
from year to year. Last year it was bright orange,
this year it was a vibrant yellow.
This is our second Fothergilla growing at the
foot of the back stairs. This is early October (2003)
with the leaves beginning to change,
& being rather particolored & amazing.
We obtained both our Fothergillas from the same stocks
yet their colors are so different. It's hard to assume broad
generalities based on experience with only two shrubs,
but it appears that the more sun it receives through
the year, the more varied will be the autumn colors.
The parti-color is still holding out in early November
& in fact this coloration more or less stablized
right up until the leaves dropped.
The same shrub that had been parti-colored the previous autumn
was one year later (early November 2004) predominantly a deep
shimmering yellow, with highlights of pink.
Read all about this shrub on the main
Mt. Airy Fothergilla Page.
