Noteworthy Characteristics

The deep, dusky plum-brown foliage (the darkest in the trade) of Daruma Dwarf Loropetalum provides a unique color in the landscape and contrasts wonderfully with the masses of fragrant soft pink fringe flowers displayed from winter into spring. The form is compact and mounding reaching a mature height of 3 to 4 feet in full sun and taller in part shade. The plant responds well to shearing and can be kept lower with relative ease.

Uses

Depending on the amount of sun, Daruma Loropetalum grows 4 to 6 feet tall with an equal spread making it an excellent selection for foundation plantings, in shrub borders, or as a small specimen tree, as espalier (trained to grow flat against a wall), or as a natural or formal hedge.

Culture

Daruma Loropetalum is easy to grow and low maintance. Plant it in locations that provide well-drained soils and full sun to part shade. Though not picky about soil type, well drained and acidic soil is essential for this plant. Pruning is minimal unless you want to shear it into a more formal shape. Prune as needed throughout the year to maintain desired form, ceasing pruning two months prior to the first typical frost date in your area. When the plant has gone dormant pruning can be resumed.
