Leucothoe, doghobble, Agarista populifolia
An evergreen, informal shrub with long arching branches and brilliantly shiny green leaves. Most garden leucothoe top out at 10 feet though in the wild it has been seen to reach heights of 15’. It grows in sun but prefers part shade; it can grow in wet or dry but if in full sun, it will look better with moderate water. Pretty little white flowers hang from the nodes in summer. This is a great shrub for screening, for groupings, for the back of shrub borders, anywhere where a really nice clean green is needed all year round. Zone 7-9. Plants are shipped in 1 gallon containers.
