Leucothoe axillaris 'Curly Red' is an easy-growing, evergreen shrub. Perfect for borders or large patio pots, this decorative plant has delightfully glossy curled and crimped leaves which turn rich red in autumn. Don't be fooled by its exotic appearance - it may not look easy to grow but these shrubs plants are surprisingly hardy and are ideal for acid-soiled shady borders. They look particularly good when mixed with other evergreen shrubs, such as those the amber-leaved Euonymus. With less acidic soils, you can grow Leucothoe in containers using an ericaceous compost mix. Height: 1.5m (4'.9"). Spread: 2m (6'.5").

Height Up to 150cm (60in)
Spread Up to 200cm (79in)
