Leucothoe 'Squirt™' - 3 Gal.


Leucothoe axillaris 'Squirt™'

This evergreen is dense and showy with its rich mahogany and copper-toned new growth that really stands out against the glossy, green leaves. Native bees love the nectar from the fragrant, white, bell-shaped flowers that bloom in May. Its low, spreading form is perfect for grouping in shaded areas.

Interesting Notes

This plant is sometimes called doghobble because it can form impenetrable thickets in nature that hindered hunting from horseback and dogs alike.
