Plant of the Week: Leucothoe

Plant of the Week: Leucothoe

It's not often you find a shrub which offers handsomely arching branches of glossy evergreen leaves turning a deep, handsome red in autumn, plus fragrant white spring blossom - yet this easy-going beauty is not widely grown.

It's a superb choice for tubs and borders where its autumn colouring makes it an eyecatcher late in the season. It does need acid soil to colour up well, so if you don't have a low pH soil in the garden just pop it in a pot of ericaceous compost (available from our garden centre). Team with brilliant yellow-stemmed dogwood 'Flaviramea' and golden-variegated ivy for a spectacularly colourful winter container.
