Description:

Clusters of rich, pink, fringed flowers bloom repeatedly throughout the year. The showy new deep burgundy foliage matures to a lovely bronze-green, maintaining a purple tinge as it as it ages, creating a colorful year-round accent to the landscape. Works well for containers, borders, and foundation plantings, as a single specimen or in groupings.

Design Ideas: The perfect alternative to fuchsia in colder regions, where it may stay in the ground year-round. It's a double bonus with bronze foliage and bright pink flowers. Plant around the edges of shade gardens or at posts of overhead arbors and patio covers. Spot into your shrub and perennial beds to make them pop with color. Use as foundation planting around outdoor living spaces, where you and the hummingbirds will enjoy it up close. Makes a great patio, porch or balcony plant when grown in a big ceramic pot (avoid red clay, which will clash with both foliage and flowers).

Provide well-drained soil, slightly acidic and rich in organic matter. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.

History

Loropetalum is native to China but only recently brought into cultivation in the last few decades when selections and breeding in Asia have produced interesting parents of our mordern American hybrids and cultivars.

Customer Reviews

Amazing Plant
by Gail, March 20, 2018

I have, over the years purchased numerous Loropetalums. They have been easy care and undemanding. They are wonderful and beautiful with lovely flowering seasons, no exception. I have one outside my kitchen window and it soothes me with its charm and beauty. Going to expand them with a recent purchase to add a 'big' impact on a slope that needs some continuous color, and think it will be amazing. Hope so anyway.
