What is this plant?

CT, Zone 5, United States Us

I hope this is an easy question, but I'm a total beginner and this plant is going gangbusters around my house!

I just dramatically reduced a huge garden bed in my front yard to make room for our expanded driveway (the bed was ugly anyway, and we've just completed an addition onto our house). This little plant is coming right back up with no problem! I wonder if it is worth digging up an moving, as it clearly loves my climate.

On plant ??




looks like leucothoe "rainbow" to me, lovely plant.

Agree with Stevebuk - and Stevebuk, where've you been? Long time no hear...

I agree too, i have this plant in several places in the back garden and i love it :)

Yours is clearly very happy there but you could try moving some !
Take as much soil and rootball as possible and water in madly for a few weeks when it's in its new position.
