Leucothoe 'Rainbow' is an evergreen, multi-stemmed compact shrub with striking, arching red branches of narrow, glossy leaves which are deep red when new, before turning dark green where they provide a fabulous backdrop to other garden plants.
In autumn, the leaves transform into fiery scarlet, so 'Rainbow' really does give you year-round colour and form adding interest wherever it is planted.
This ornamental shrub welcomes spring with drooping clusters of dainty white, bell-like flowers that last well into midsummer.
A very hardy shrub, these are easy to grow and make perfect specimens in pots or in beds and borders where their colourful leaves can shine through the garden, preferring acid conditions and a shaded location.
Growing to 75cm (2.5ft) tall and wide, we supply an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for potting on or planting out.
