Fothergilla major is a small deciduous shrub up to 1.5-2 m tall, with a thick and compact habit. It has obovate and almost rounded leaves, alternate, shiny, dark green, with toothed margins, which take on magnificent red-orange or yellow-pink shades in autumn. In late spring it produces, before or together with the leaves, 3/5 cm long terminal spikes of fragrant white flowers, sometimes tinged with pink.
