Scarletta Leucothoe Shrubs for Sale Online

Leucothoe Scarletta is a gorgeous ground cover shrub loved for its dramatic foliage color, easy care regimen and year round interest.

The popular shrub gains its name from royal figures in greek mythology, and these plants will surely make your yard feel like royalty this planting season! The woodland plant sports a regal scarlet purple foliage that changes colors with the seasons. The evergreen shrub matures to sport a deep green foliage in the spring, and then turns to a warm bronze-tone in the fall.

Ideal care conditions for the Leucothoe Scarletta include part shade and part sun, and regular watering. The plant also prefers a rich, well draining soil blend. To conserve moisture and protect your plant from the elements, we recommend sprinkling a layer of mulch around the base of the plant.

Popular in use as ground cover, landscape borders and mass plantings, the Scarletta brings sophisticated grace to a garden.
