Agarista populifolia in the snow

They were lovely today, branches bowed into graceful arches by the weight of last night's snow. It isn't a plant that you can count on the look good all winter though. Eventually the cold will get to it, hey, it's Florida Leucothoe. The leaftips will burn and whole branches will die. A good hard pruning in the spring and it'll be beautiful again. There are a good number of large secimens in Fern Valley, many visible from the road.
