Leucothoe 'Rant01' (FIRESTAR) is a mutation found within Leucothoe 'Zeblid'. FIRESTAR is more compact than 'Zeblid'. Additionally, the young shoots are red with a consistent white edge. This white edging provides Leucothoe FIRESTAR with a distinctive contrast against the underlying green leaves. Leucothoe FIRESTAR thrives in a sunny location. The plant is highly winter-hardy and serves as a unique addition to the garden when placed in a pot on the terrace. Tree nursery A. Antonissen in Sprundel has submitted this plant for evaluation and will also bring it to the market.
