How to use "Genus fothergilla" in context?
Fothergilla is a genus of 10-20 species of succulent plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The genus is native to Eurasia, North America, and South America. Many species, especially the eastern and western Fothergilla, are grown as ornamental plants.
Fothergilla grows from an underground corm, and initially appears to be nothing more than a large, flat daisy. As the plant grows, its leaves will create a lush mat of flowers atop the corm. The plants vary in color, but are typically light purple, white, or yellow, with conspicuous dark spots.
