Leucothoe 'Scarletta' (Dog hobble)
'Scarletta' is a spreading, evergreen shrub with leathery, oblong to lance-shaped leaves, reddish-purple when young, maturing dark green, and turning reddish-bronze in autumn and winter. Racemes of cylindrical or urn-shaped, white flowers bloom in spring.
Grow in moist, acid soil in partial or full shade. Tolerates sun if soil is consistently moist. Does not tolerate strong winds or drought. Site carefully as tends to sucker and form colonies over time. Will reach a height of 1.5m and a spread of 2.5m after 10-20 years.
