The Grace of Andromeda
Andromedas are as lovely as the name sounds, with long waxy leaves and flowing racemes of little florets that ripple in the breeze. These evergreen shrubs are an elegant addition to any yard, and work particularly well in the back of a shady border or along a home’s foundation. Reaching about eye-level, the mound of waxy green foliage puts on a color-changing display, turning red and silvery throughout the year. The Andromeda reaches the height of beauty in early spring, when chains of florets hang luxuriantly off of bent branches.
