Details

Abundant bottlebrush-like spikes of sweet honey scented 2’’ long white flowers last for 3-4 weeks, first appearing in early spring. ‘Mt. Airy’ is an incredibly hardy selection, known to be frost resistant and easy to grow while providing excellent three season foliage. Blueish-green foliage appears in the summer, while November brings significant shades of yellow, red and orange. ‘Mt. Airy’ will follow a more upright growing habit, reaching around 5-6’ in height. This desirable selection was discovered by Michael A. Dirr at the Mt. Airy Arboretum in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1988, and was noted for being a spectacular plant to grow and watch thrive even in stressful conditions
