Tell me about leucothoes please

last month
last modified: last month

I'm in zone 8 southeast Virginia, for context. But also looking for zone 6b, Ohio.
I have never tried growing leucothoe, but have heard (albeit from a very small number of internet people) good things about the burning love variety in particular.
Yet I don't see this plant in anyone's garden, and it seems hard to find, even by mail order.
I've heard leucothoes can be prone to leaf spot, but seems like burning love is not as susceptible to that? Am I missing something about this plant? Why is it so hard to find, and why do I not see it planted anywhere?
For burning love, it's only hardy to zone 6. Will it do well in Ohio?
Thanks everyone.
