Leucothoe ‘Royal Ruby’, also known as Dog Hobble, is a low growing, evergreen shrub with arching branches, though it tends to spread low and dense making it an ideal candidate for ground cover. Glossy, dark green foliage grows thick, maturing to rich red in the colder months. Drooping panicles of small, fragrant, urn-shaped flowers blooming in the late Spring and into the Summer appear beneath the foliage, providing spots of bright contrast with the dark foliage.
Grows well in moist, well-drain soiled. Prefers acidic soils with ericaceous compost and should be kept in full or partial sun, with partial sun bringing out more of the foliage colours. Water regularly and consistently.
