Deceptively exotic, but they're easy to grow
Richly coloured evergreen shrub
Perfect for acid-soiled, shady borders
There are few more decorative ground-cover shrubs than Leucothoe ‘Scarletta'. It's a richly coloured evergreen shrub with leaves, which start life as rich burgundy, evolving into a lovely green. As autumn arrives they change again into a mature bronze. Leucothoe ‘Scarletta' thrives in deep or partial shade. In full sun, it develops an almost metallic sheen.
Leucothoe can look deceptively exotic, but they're easy to grow. The plants are hardy and perfect for acid-soiled shady borders. These lovely shrubs combine beautifully with other evergreens, particularly golden leaved varieties, such as Euonymus. Where the soil is not naturally acidic, you can grow Leucothoe easily in patio 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)
