This boldly foliaged plant is well suited to a woodland setting. The 6-inch long leaves of Leucoseptrum stellipilum are of good substance, slightly hairy to the touch, and regularly serrated along their margins. The shrub is woody at its base, with stiff, woolly stems and opposite sets of leaves occuring at 4 to 6 inch intervals. The flowers appear at the terminals of main and axillary stems and form small, vibrant upright bottle-brushes that enliven the autumn garden.
