Product information "Dog Hobble 'Rainbow'"

The colourful dog hobble 'Rainbow' immediately catches the eye with its colourfully patterned leaves. The elongated, glossy leaves are cream white, green and red spotted (variegated) and thus appear very lively. In autumn and in the winter, purple and maroon tones are added. The evergreen foliage thus sets vivid colour accents even in the winter.
Dense growth

Leucothoe 'Rainbow' grows dense and compact. Since it is very tolerant to shade and pruning, it can be used well as a flat ground cover for shady garden areas. But even as a solitary plant or in small groups in front of hedges and shrubs, it is striking all year round with its lively colouring.
No lime, please!
Dog hobble loves humus-rich, loose and acidic soils. Therefore, it can be combined well with rhododendrons, azaleas and lavender heaths. In very rough locations, the evergreen plants should receive a cover of brushwood in the winter. In mild regions, the colourful dog hobble with its beautiful foliage is also a decorative and durable container plant. Please use rhododendron soil when potting!
