Leucothoe fontanesiana from Christine. In SC

Posted on |

Plant growing on the edge of the Tyger River in South Spartanburg County. Shady area.

Hi Christine,

this is the Highland doghobble, Leucothoe fontanesiana, in the heath family Ericaceae.  Very common on the Blue Ridge and nearby.

Sorry for the delay, something has failed with the software and I have not been receiving these notices.
