Leucothoe Walteri Rainbow 1-2ft tall in 2litre Pot, Attractive Ground Cover


Leucothoe Walteri Rainbow 1-2ft tall in 2litre Pots


This North American shrub enjoys heavy shade, as plants grow wild deep in mountain woods, and most of its varieties prefer similar conditions


Growing Details:

Common Name: Leucothoe
Genus: Leucothoe
Species: fontanesiana
Cultivar: 'Rainbow'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Acidic, Moist
Height: 150cm
Spread: 200cm



They slowly spread to form attractive ground cover, effectively suppressing all weeds and, provided plenty of compost is added at planting time to prevent the roots from drying out, plants will be happy. 'Rainbow' is an extravagantly marked foliage plant that differs from the others by needing light shade or even dappled sun to maintain its bright colours.
