What's this plant?
The shrub looks like Fothergilla. There are several species.
mh, You nailed it... We bought this home in a COOP community but it was landscaped by the daughter of the owners and she is a landscape architect... Every time we turn around something else interesting pops up. A Carolina Silver bell in the front yard, A Stewartia in the back yard, a red leaved Red Bud in the garden a Climbing Hydrangea... Never heard that was possible... Looks like they cut it back pretty hard to put the house on the market so have not seen a bloom yet.
Thank you for the input!
Thought my last response was pretty reassuring that I got what I was looking for! So far all the questions I have asked have been very well thought out and very close to the mark!
