More Information About Leucosceptrum

Leucosceptrum is a genus of hard-to-find Japanese subshrubs used primarily as woodland garden foliage plants. In many parts of the country, Leucosceptrum is a dieback perennial that reaches a healthy 3' x 3' by autumn. Leucosceptrum leaves are reminiscent of hydrangea with the added bonus of often being quite colorful. In fall, leucoseptrum plants produce small bottlebrush-like flowers...a nice addition during a time of year when the garden flowers are mostly finished.
