Rich wine red glossy leaves brighten the winter landscape on our new ‘Rejoyce’ Coast Leucothoe. This evergreen shrub loves shade or partial sun exposures and pushes out new growth every spring that is vibrant red. Delicate white urn shaped flowers nod gently on the arching stems. In late spring, ‘Rejoyce’s long leaves turn green, and the gracefully arching branches will mature at 3’ tall and wide.
Native to the Eastern seaboard, leucothoe is deer resistant and easy to grow. Thriving in woodland garden settings, consider pairing ‘Rejoyce’ with hostas, brunnera, ferns or Japanese forest grass.
‘Rainbow’ is another popular variety of Leucothoe featuring mottled yellow and green foliage. Come stroll the peaceful paths at Squak Mt Nursery soon to meet ‘Rejoyce’ and many other colorful shrubs that are ideal for your landscape.
