Leucothoe axillaris Curly Red – Unique Twisted Evergreen Foliage on category Garden Plants
SPECIAL DEAL – Usually 15.99 today just 9.99 – Save £6! A very unusual and intriguing evergreen shrub. Leucothoe ‘Curly Red’ is very sought after due to it’s unique curling leaves. When they first shoot young leaves are a glossy red colour before maturing to a glossy green for Summer. As Winter comes and the cold weather approaches this fantastic shrub actually changes its colour back to red and remains so until Spring approaches and new shoots appear. It can also bloom with small white flowers in Spring however these are often insignificant and do not draw attention away from it’s glorious foliage. An ideal plant at providing groundcover due to it’s low spreading habit. Can grow up to 1m in height if not maintained however it is commonly and very easily trimmed to keep it compact. This plant is easy to grow and very hardy. It prefers moist well-drained soil and a shady position but is also tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. Best planted amongst golden foliage plants as the dark-red bold colouring of this Leucothoe really contrasts well. Try planting with Sarcococca confusa or Daphne odora aureomarginata so as to get that delightful fragrance that they produce coupled with the visual attractiveness of the bright curly foliage on this fantastic Leucothoe. Perhaps try planting in a container over Winter to make a lovely feature of this shrub before planting in your bed or border when Spring arrives. Supplied as super quality bushy plants in approx 2-3 litre containers. SPECIAL DEAL – Usually 15.99 today just 9.99 – Save £6!
