Leucothoe axillaris - Coastal Dog Hobble
A low-growing, evergreen shrub with a vase-like shape which grows slowly to a height of 3-4’ with shiny, dark green leaves and clusters of slightly fragrant white flowers which bloom in May. The leaves turn a purplish-bronze color in winter. These particular Leucothoes prefer an acidic, organic soil. Full sun works well as long as they have good moisture because they do not tolerate drought very well.
Sun to Semi-Shade, Average, Medium Moist Soil, Late Spring, 3-4’ Tall, Zones 6-9
