Why plant Burning Love™ Leucothoe?

Did someone turn the heat on? Nope - that would be the Burning Love™ Leucothoe! Exploding with ruby-purple tones year round, would you be surprised that the color becomes even more intense come fall? Well, it does! This evergreen shrub can be characterized by its compact, shrub like habit that's wonderful as an accent piece to any garden.

Discovered by chance, Ron Van Opstal stumbled upon a container in the Netherlands where he noticed one naturally occurring branch mutation on a "Royal Ruby" standing out over the rest - this is known today as the Burning Love™. However, when looking into the scientific name of Leucothoe keiskei, we learn that it actually honors Keisuke from 1803-1901 a Japanese physician and botanist - where this plant originates from.

How to use Burning Love™ Leucothoe in the landscape?

With glossy dark green foliage topped with sensational flare, we can think of a few places the Burning Love™ can live! Thriving as an accent piece in any form of garden, this compact shrub also does great in a container. Depending on the climate, this shrub is capable of living in full sun but it's best to be grown or kept in shadier spots.

How To Plant Burning Love™ Leucothoe

When planting, we do recommend watering well before planting for a better chance at rooting. Plant is a well draining soil, as they don't like to have 'wet feet'!

How To Water

Once planted, it's best to keep to a weekly watering schedule. However, it is important to not over water your Burning Love™. When fully established, watering may not be necessary as often but check how dry the soil is weather depending and water accordingly.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each year. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

While not necessary, pruning the Burning Love™ may be done in early spring to clean up any damaged foliage that may have occurred or to clean up the shape to fit your eye for design.
