As the name implies, ‘Squirt’ is more compact than other dwarf species of leucothoe. Its rich mahogany and copper-toned new growth really stands out against the glossy, hunter-green leaves. Honeybees love the nectar from the fragrant, white, bell-shaped flowers. The low spreading form provides shelter for birds and other wildlife all year long. This woodland native can be used as an understory shrub, in the border or on slopes along creek beds and ponds.
