An attractive and richly coloured evergreen shrub. Leucothoe axillaris 'Zeblid', also known as Scarletta or Switch Ivy, is a spreading, low growing plant with leathery, oblong green leaves with red margins which mature to a dark green and turn to a lovely red-bronze in the autumn and winter. It provides small stems of tiny urn-shaped white flowers in spring. Scarletta provides great foliage that works well in a container or as part of a border.
This variety can tolerate brief periods of drought, but is at its healthiest with regular watering and maintaining soil moisture. It prefers partial to shaded areas, developing better colour, but can tolerate full sun with maintained moisture. Plant with ericaceous compost and keep sheltered from harsh wind.
