Leucothoe axillaris 'Curly Red' (Large Plant)

Hardy Shrub

Leucothoe is an easy to grow, evergreen shrub for large patio pots or borders. Leucothoe 'Curly Red' has attractive, crimped and curled glossy foliage, turning deep red in autumn. Plants are highly sought after, and should take pride of place in your garden.

Leucothoe may look exotic and difficult to grow, but plants are hardy, and are ideal for shady borders with acid soil. Combine with other evergreen shrubs, especially those with golden foliage like Euonymus. Where soils are not naturally acidic, grow Leucothoe in patio containers using an ericaceous compost mix. Height: 1.5m (4',9"). Spread: 2m (6',5")
