Dig into the details


Fetterbush (Lyonia lucida), also known as Shiny Lyonia, is a versatile, native shrub that adds color and texture to various garden settings. Known for its vibrant flowers and attractive foliage, this evergreen plant thrives in a range of growing conditions, making it an excellent choice for landscapes in USDA hardiness zones 7-9.

The Overall Plant

Fetterbush is an evergreen shrub that typically grows 5 feet tall and 3-5 feet wide, with an upright, spreading habit. It is native to the southeastern United States, where it can be found in various habitats, including pine flatwoods, swamps, and coastal scrublands. The plant is highly adaptable and can tolerate a wide range of soil types and moisture levels, making it a versatile choice for different garden settings.

Fetterbush is an excellent option for woodland gardens, mixed borders, or as a foundation planting. It is also a valuable plant for wildlife, as its flowers attract pollinators and its dense foliage provides shelter for birds and other small animals.

The Flowers

One of the standout features of the Fetterbush is its vibrant, bell-shaped flowers that appear in clusters along the stems from late winter to early spring. The flowers are typically white to pink in color, although some varieties may have a more reddish hue. The blooms are highly fragrant, adding a delightful scent to the garden and attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.

The Foliage

Fetterbush features attractive, glossy green leaves that are elliptical to oblong in shape and measure 1-3 inches in length. The evergreen foliage provides year-round visual interest, and its leathery texture adds an appealing contrast to the softer textures of other plants in the landscape. The leaves are arranged alternately along the stems, giving the plant a dense, compact appearance.

In addition to its attractive appearance, Fetterbush foliage is also relatively resistant to pests and diseases, contributing to the plant's low-maintenance appeal. However, it should be noted that the leaves and other parts of the plant are toxic if ingested, so caution should be exercised if planting in areas accessible to pets or children.
