(Dwarf Fothergilla, Dwarf Witchalder)

Dwarf fothergilla boasts honey-scented flowers in the spring and spectacular orange to scarlet fall foliage that is second to none. A slow-growing deciduous shrub with rounded leaves, it is a native of the southeastern United States. In early spring, before leaves emerge, cream-colored “brushes” open on branch tips, releasing a sweet odor. In the autumn, superb shades of yellow, orange and scarlet illuminate the shrub’s leaves.

Dwarf fothergilla grows in both sun and shade and is best in a moist...

Spectacular in flower and architectural at all seasons, this native of the low elevations of the Colorado and Sonoran deserts of the Southwest United States and Northwest New Mexico is also valued for its tolerance of drought and searing heat. Its numerous stiff, thorny, curving stems form a flowing vase-shaped clump that eventually reaches considerable height. Long conical clusters of showy red or orange flowers occur at the stem tips in winter or spring, attracting hummingbirds. Flowering may occur...

(California Ash, Foothill Ash, Two-petaled Ash)

Steadfast through the long western dry season, foothill ash is distributed from the Oregon border to Mexico where it’s most commonly found along the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas and coastal ranges. It is a deciduous shrub or small, multi-trunked tree that loses its leaves in summer when the heat and drought are most intense. Its bark is gray-brown and develops scaly fissures; young stems are four-sided and become rounded as they age.

New foliage emerges with the onset of rain in early winter....

The thick, lobed leaves of flannelbush are rich green to gray-green and fully evergreen. When growing conditions are wetter the leaves grow larger, while arid conditions cause smaller foliage....
