Leucothoe Rainbow (Leucothoe fontanesiana ‘Rainbow’)
A wonderfully colourful evergreen shade loving shrub, the leaves are a delight burnished with bronzy red that is irregularly and heavily mottled with cream and pink, borne on brightly coloured purple-red young stems. During the spring the branches bear small bell shaped white flowers adding to the interest.
Leucothoe are acid loving plants that are ideal for shady areas where their colourful show of foliage will bring brightness and interest in all seasons. They are also very much at home in the woodland and are ideal for growing in containers of ericaceous compost, especially if your soil is alkaline. Leucothoe Rainbow will make an all season interest display that could be combined with seasonal flowers or bulbs to make a shady area really pop with colour. 1.5m x 2m
