Leucothoe ‘Zablid’ SCARLETTA®

Scarletta drooping laurel

Scarletta fetterbush

Outstanding Qualities

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. This smaller shrub stays compact and symmetrical in habit.
