Looking for something a little more interesting than your common boxwood or holly? Leucothoe 'ReJoyce' comes with an offer of year-round interest. Beginning in spring, new leaves erupt in a blaze of red over tidy green mounds. White, urn-shaped flowers form in short clusters on gently arching, yet dense branches, adding a graceful elegance to any setting, whether it be container plantings or your favorite garden path. Hailing from a deer resistant, native, coastal plant from VA southward, and hardy to cold zone 6, ‘ReJoyce’ thrives in woodland settings or on slopes with dappled sun making soft textured ferns, woodland grases and hostas perfect companions.
As summer begins to fade, 'ReJoyce' ignites again with the entire plant bursting into autumn colors of deep wine red- persisting through winter. You have to admit…much more interesting than boxwood or holly! 'ReJoyce' is also a grower's dream because cuttings can be rooted throughout the growing season, the plants do not get leaf spot in the nursery and they are much more resistant to root rot. This is a winner of a plant discovered by our friend Greg Joyce, long-time nurseryman and proprietor of Edgar Joyce Nursery in southern New Jersey.
