Plant Info

'Curly Red' is named thus because of the unusual leaf shape that literally curls back to give this compact evergreen shrub such a striking appearance.  Further interest is made by the young leaves emerging bright green with red tints.  These become more green in the summer but as temperatures drop, a red returns making this a colourful addition to the winter garden.  Leaucothoes grow into a wide, low mound shape making them ideal for ground cover, pots, or specimens at the front of a border.  Eventual height 1 m.  Prefer acid to neutral soil, plant with ericaceous compost.  Hardy, grows in all light conditions but needs moist soil in full sun.

  • Position: Sun/part shade
  • Soil: Acid/neutral
  • Eventual Size: 1m high, 1.5 wide
  • Habit: Low, mound shape, bushy
  • Foliage: Green with red tints
Care Information

Trim in late spring if desired.
