Rainbow Drooping Leucothoe is a vibrant evergreen with glossy leaves that are mottled pink, cream and green, turning bright purple for the winter. In spring hanging clusters of white bell-shaped flowers grow from the stems at every point there is a leaf, making an attractive display. It forms a vase-shaped shrub between 3 and 5 feet tall and up to 6 feet across, but it can be trimmed annually to keep up less that 2 feet tall. It thrives in damp shade and is a variety of a native shrub, making it perfect for woodland gardens, slopes and banks, shady areas and for planting by streams and ponds.

  • Bright mottled foliage in cream, pink and green
  • Winter leaves are bright purple and cream
  • Ideal evergreen shrub for shade and damp soil
  • Hanging clusters of white bell-flowers in spring
  • A native plant that is perfect for woodlands and natural gardens

Plant your Rainbow Drooping Leucothoe in full sun if the soil is always damp, and otherwise in partial or light full shade. It is hardy almost everywhere, and grows best in acidic, damp soils containing plenty of organic material. It is normally pest and disease free and not eaten by deer. It tolerates wet soil and coastal salt-spray, but not brackish or salty water.
