Leucothoe axillaris

Coast Leucothoe

Coast Leucothoe is a lovely spring blooming broad leaf evergreen, with white flower racemes in April and May. Leucothoe axillaris's branching habit is an interesting zigzag and in winter it's foliage takes on hues of red and burgundy.   Prefers acid, moist soil and does not tolerate drought and wind so site correctly.  Native to the Southeastern US, Leucothoe axillaris flowers attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
