    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Red Diamond™  Loropetalum boasts the most intense purple foliage color of any plant on the market! Vibrant red, witchhazel-like, fringy flowers are heavy in spring, appear occasionally in summer, and again in fall. The foliage provides a stunning contrast with the bright red flowers. Mature height is about 6 feet with an equal spread. It can be pruned or sheared year-round for a more formal shape or to limit size.

    Uses

    Red Diamond™ Loropetalum is useful as a foundation plant, a colorful natural or clipped formal hedge, espalier-grown flat against a wall, as an accent, as a small tree, or in small to large groupings in landscape beds.

    Culture & Care Tips

    Plant it in locations that provide well-drained soils and full sun to part shade. In our trial gardens, we've had Loropetalum growing in sites that provide anywhere from full sun to half a days shade. Plants grows a little fuller and foliage color is more intense with more sun. Pruning is minimal unless you want to shear it into a more formal shape. When established, Loropetalum are exceptionally drought tolerant. However, water enough during the first year after planting to keep the root ball and surrounding soil moist but not constantly soggy. Loropetalum does not like wet feet. It's best to provide an occasional deep soaking when needed rather than a little or a lot of water every day.
