Product Description

 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.

Top Tips

  • Leucothoe prefers dappled to partial shade.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Leucothoe 'Rainbow':

  • Grow in acidic, well-drained soil, that is rich in organic matter, if growing in pots use ericaceous compost.
  • Hardy to -20C plants will need shelter from harsh winter winds and strong sunshine as this will scorch the leaves.
  • To plant, water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your palm, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Pruning Advice for Leucothoe:

  • Pruning will help create a bushier, neater plant and overgrown plants can be cut back hard to 45cm (18in) to rejuvenate them.
  • Prune in late winter or early spring, before new growth begins.
