Leucothoe Scarletta, commonly known as Dog Hobble is a bushy, spreading evergreen shrub with pointed oval shaped leaves which are green with bright red edges when young, and when maturing these turn a lovely dark green and bronze/red colour in the autumn. In the months of April and May the Leucothoe Scarletta blooms small white flowers which are just an added bonus to this plant, grown simply for its foliage.

A good shrub for low maintenance gardens and can be planted on banks or slopes or edging of borders where the low ground cover can create a wonderful colour for visitors to admire. Can also be grown in a container/as a potted plant which can then be planted in shaded balconies or gardens without grass.
