Rainbow Leucothoe

This graceful evergreen has striking red stems and pink and cream mottled foliage that lends color to the border all year long. Fragrant, white, spring flowers hang in clusters from the arching branches and make good cut flowers. A natural companion plant to rhododendrons, this woodland native thrives in acid soil and full to partial shade, but will tolerate sun if soil is not dry.

  • Spread: 3 - 5'
