Caring

Regularly water the Leucothoe zeblid, keeping the soil evenly moist. Ensure good drainage of excess rain water. For the plant to keep its shape and to have more young shoots, annual pruning is recommended. Pruning should be done immediately after the flowering period.

Placing

Placing

Plant the Leucothoe zeblid in a sheltered spot in partial shade. If the soil retains enough moisture, the dog hobble will feel great in full sun as well. The more sun the plant captures, the more beautiful the changing leaf colours in winter.

Propogation

Propogation

The dog hobble should only be repotted when the plant outgrows its pot. The plant can also be propagated by cutting a piece off the existing plant in summer.
