Leucothoe is an evergreen shrub for covering the ground in borders. Leucothoe 'Scarletta' has attractive leaves, which emerge as dark maroon, turning green as they mature, and changing to bronze by autumn. Plants prefer partial or deep shade, although will look almost metallic when grown in full sun.
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'). Spread: 2m (6').
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
