Leucothoe fontanesiana Zeblid (Scarletta)

Leucothoe Zeblid (Scarletta)

Smaller than the better known Leucothoe Rainbow, Leucothoe fontanesiana Zeblid (Scarletta) is a small, evergreen shrub with arching branches and a dense, weed-suppressing habit, grown for the brilliance of its young and autumn foliage. The glossy, lance-shaped leaves, smaller than those of Leucothoe Rainbow, emerge brilliant red, turning mid-green with red edges, and finally green. Foliage turns rich bronze and wine-coloured in late autumn and winter. Small, scented white flowers appear in April and May. Leucothoe Scarletta holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
