'Mount Airy' seems to be the most common cultivar of this species in the US. It was selected from the Mount Airy Arboretum in Cincinnati, Ohio for its good bluish-green foliage color, its abundant display of flowers that are larger than the straight species, its good yellow-orange-red fall color, its good vigor, and its 5 to 6 feet high form. It is offered by many nurseries and garden centers around New England, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Georgia, Texas, and more. The mother species has a native range in coastal North & South Carolina to eastern Tennessee, to spots in Alabama & Georgia to northwest Florida. It does need a good quality soil that is draining wet to moist to well-drained, and it can tolerate pH a little above 7.0.
