dwarf witchalder, Fothergilla gardeni

My granddaughter went off to school today with pink hair. The process of discovering what works is amazing and mysterious. One could wonder what teleogy caused witchalder to shed petals and develop showy filaments. Junior high for flowers? Witch alder is also known for its fall color. It flourishes in our gardens because of that. May Katie be as successful. Dwarf witchalder grows in AL, FL, GA, NC, and SC. Matthaei Gardens, UMich, 5/18/14.
