Leucothe Tri Color Rainbow #3

A lovely small shrub that performs beautifully in shaded conditions? Ornamental features to die for? Yes, please!

Fragrant, variegated Girard's Rainbow Leucothoe (Leucothoe fontanesiana 'Girard's Rainbow'') performs year in and year out to give you an elegant backdrop. Place several in a showy row to set the stage for outdoor living.

This gorgeous "workhorse" has cunning, pointed leaves that have a pretty polish and paint job. Variegated foliage combines green, cream and touched with a pink highlight here and there.

Girard's Rainbow Leucothoe also adds a dynamic sense of motion to your space with long, arched branches that gracefully curtsey down to the ground. The leaves are held on long petioles, and catch slight breezes in a wholly attractive way.

It's no wonder why garden designers rely on this special cultivar of a native plant to hang their designs upon. Carefree evergreen Girard's Rainbow Leucothoe looks lovely in all seasons.

It is perhaps at it's best in spring, when the long racemes of bell-shaped blooms open up. You'll adore the fragrance...and the sight of butterflies and hummingbirds who come to visit.

Use a few as filler in large indoor cut flower arrangements. Tuck a few in a bud vase or two on your bedside table for sweet dreams.
