Leucothoe 'Rainbow' - 3 Gal.


Leucothoe fontanesiana 'Rainbow'

If ever there was an under appreciated easy-care shrub that gives throughout the year, this has got to be it. Evergreen, slow growing and deer-resistant, this versatile beauty will please you 12 months a year, brightening the shade landscape wherever it resides. The milky foliage, mottled delightfully with shades of green, pink, and bronze, is pure summer happiness. Adding to the pleasure are the extravagant, long lasting, drooping clusters of small, creamy flowers that are well suited to cutting and show from late May through June. Autumn adds to the grand performance by providing intense purplish bronzing to the evergreen foliage that lasts through the winter. Plant in semi-shade for best results, and be sure to feed early in the season with an all-purpose acid fertilizer.
