|Lore||Leucothoe is the name of the daughter of Orchamus, king of Babylonia from ancient mythology.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Reaches 18 to 20 in. tall, 12 in. wide, slowly spreading wider.|
|Design Ideas||Scarletta's new growth in springtime is an explosion of color, varying from deep scarlet to bronzy orange. The evergreen leaves morph into a glossy green for summer, then as autumn moves into winter the foliage takes on a patina of burgundy, bronze, or dark purple. Perfect for a seasonally colorful border or low hedge, ground cover in moist woodland settings, or as an accent in decorative pots.|

Water deeply, regularly to establish root system; once established, keep evenly moist. Apply an acid fertilizer early spring; repeat after flowering. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
