Description
Leucothoe axillaris 'Little Flames' is a compact, evergreen shrub with a neat, bushy habit that is perfect for winter containers and the front of shaded acid borders. Its new shoots appear in fiery crimson, standing out brightly against the mature, glossy green foliage. Dainty racemes of white spring flowers add to its charms. Come autumn, 'Little Flames' brightens fading planting schemes with a blaze of colour, as the foliage turns to crimson. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 30cm (12").
