My Leucothe Looks Almost Dead

What can be the problem and what can I do?


If you pay attention to the native habitat of a plant, you can more easily choose the best location for it in your own landscape. In the wild, Leucothoe grows along shady stream banks, so shade, adequate water, and an acid and rich soil are part of the happiness quotient.

Leucothoe Axillaris

How and when should leucothoe alxillaris be pruned? How much sun do they need? Several suffered extensive damage this winter due to the heavy snow falls. Thank you.

This shrub can be planted in partial to full sun.
Pruning can be done any time of year, but it is best to prune in late winter or early spring before new growth appears.
