This evergreen shrub is a great low maintenance and easy-growing plant that changes colour as it matures, with dark maroon leaves in its infancy that turn green as it grows older. It has even been known to take on a metallic-like glow when positioned in the sun, too. Whilst it works well in flowerbeds, it can also be planted in patio pots.

If you're lucky, you may see your plant produce small white flowers during early spring and summer.

This plant prefers to be on the dark side, so position in a shady spot in your garden. It also likes its soil to be moist, well drained, and acidic. The Leucothoe Scarletta is very easy to grow as well and coupled with its bright foliage, it makes a great all-rounder. Also, this plant is toxic to pets so keep this in mind if your furry friends are prone to nibbling.

Jo's top tip

The Leucothoe Scarletta is an easy way to inject some colour into your garden for minimal effort - its red leaves will look as if you've spent hours tending to it, when in reality its care needs are minimal.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
