Fothergilla gardenii is one of my very favourite small shrubs. Deciduous, with the most amazing autumn leaf colour - and then these gorgeous spring flowers. Unlike many shrubs, it does not outgrow the size on the label, and it just quietly goes about it's business, with lovely light green summer foliage to offset colourful perennials around it. Quite hard to get hold of these days, and I am not sure why more nurseries are not growing it. It is a really lovely shrub.
