Leucothoe axillaris

Coast Leucothoe

Shiny, evergreen leaves and neat, compact habit make this a great choice for the shady landscape. Branches arch out from plant with foliage dangling down. New growth emerges rich copper, aging to deep green. Leaves take on a scarlet cast in winter. White, fragrant flowers in drooping clusters appear in mid spring. Needs a shady location with plenty of organic matter and moisture.
