Swamp Leucothoe. (syn. Leucothoe populifolia) One of the finest native shrubs around. I can't say enough good about this plant. Outstanding foliage arranged along pendulous branches adds to its grace. The new leaves in the spring have a bronze cast, then hardening off to dark green. In the spring it produces 2-3 inch long racemes of lily-of-the-valley like flowers which hang from its branches. Interestingly this plant is native to the southeast corner of SC and FL. For some reason it skips over GA. It can be comfortably maintained at 8 to 10 ft., but we have one in our garden over 20 ft. Great mix with azaleas and rhododendrons and one of the finest fillers in flower arrangements.
