How to Care for Florida Leucothoe

Your Florida Leucothoe

Agarista  tolerates full shade to mostly sunny if roots are kept moist.  Use a deep training pot. Transplants easily and adapts when not stressed. Heavily suckers to multi-stem but looks best when pruned to a single trunk. Shear back abundant regrowth after heavy pruning. "Taylor's Treasure" is fairly leafspot resistant. In spite of the Florida name, Agarista grows in Zones 7-9
