Enjoy four seasons of beauty, color and texture with this uncommonly pretty shrub. Spring and summer are abuzz when unique twisted leaves of orange-red cover the plant, changing to deep green and shades of scarlet red later in the season. In fall and winter, the foliage takes on hues of purple and red—a highly desirable combination in the fall and winter landscape. Small, red berries accompany the colorful show late in the year, giving birds something to snack on before winter arrives in earnest. In the spring, small white flowers open. Makes a nice container or foundation planting. Plant in groups to add drama and interest! Ships in 4" pot. Zones 6-9. Leucothoe axillaris 'Curly Red' PP17666

.

For a more dynamic garden appearance, consider adding small and medium-sized shrubbery. Available in a wide range of colors, heights and habits, ornamental shrubs add another layer of natural beauty to the landscape and provide a lovely backdrop to flowering bulbs, perennials and annuals. Of course, some shrubs are so pretty, they create a beautiful display all by themselves. There are a host of evergreen shrub varieties that make wonderful foundation plantings. In addition, there are several truly spectacular cultivars that change color all year round! No matter where you plant them, these shrubs really pack a punch.
