This is a beautiful evergreen shrub native to the southeastern United States, including Florida. It's known for its glossy, dark green leaves and delicate, bell-shaped white flowers that bloom in late spring.

The Florida Leucothoe thrives in partial to full shade and prefers well-drained, acidic soil. It's a great choice for woodland gardens or as an understory plant in larger landscapes. It can grow up to 5-10 feet tall and wide, so it provides a nice, dense cover for birds and other wildlife.

This plant is also quite hardy and can tolerate a range of conditions, including drought and frost, once established. However, it's susceptible to leaf spot, so it's important to keep an eye out for any signs of this disease.
