Product Description

Ethereal Early Summer Blooms

Ethereal, elegant and wonderfully scented blooms from May through June: The Rainbow Leucothoe Bush is a remarkable pick with a timeless look. And it's not only known for its beauty but also its strength, since it's untroubled by pests and diseases.

Even better? The Rainbow Leucothoe is deer resistant, too. Hassle-free and gorgeously heightened, the Rainbow Leucothoe hits that sweet spot between low-maintenance and luxuriance. Plus, because it can be grown as a standalone specimen in containers or grouped in the ground as a border hedge, it's totally versatile.

Vibrant growth comes in the form of new stems, ranging from richly red to vivacious, deep green. Glossy, tapered leaves put on a dazzling presentation year-round and may develop a reddish or bronze hue during fall for even more dimension. Visual interest with extra drama? Check.

However, the star of the show is the Leucothoe's dangling bell-shaped flowers, usually crisp white in tone but occasionally tinged with blue. So, although the Rainbow Leucothoe's 3 to 5-foot silhouette is smaller and more manageable in size, its colorful impact in flower beds, backyard gardens and beyond is huge.

All the Rainbow Leucothoe needs to thrive is acidic, well-drained soil and adequate watering. Water your Rainbow deeply and regularly during its first growing season '– this will help establish an extensive root system. Feed the evergreen plant with an acid fertilizer during the early spring, repeat after flowing and keep its roots cool with a thick, dense layer of mulch. For a neater appearance, the Rainbow can be pruned during winter, before new growth appears.

Artfully-curated color '– and no green thumb required. The Rainbow's care is as easy as 1-2-3. There's nothing better than a lush and luxe pick with nearly-effortless care. And with the Rainbow Leucothoe Bush, instant curb appeal and landscape opulence are just a click away. Order your Rainbow Leucothoe today!
