'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
Trim in late spring if desired.

Larger Plants Not In Our Online Shop
If you would like to order a larger plant which does not appear in the online shop, please call us or send us an email and we will be able to give you a cost for delivery using our own transport.

This way you can make sure you are going to get exactly what you want.
Alternatively, we may convince you to come down and see us and we can easily help you to try to fit the plants you would like into your car - sometimes this has to be seen to be believed!
