It matures to an average height of 10 feet to 15 feet and an average width of 8 feet to 15 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. In the spring and fall Zhuzhou Loropetalum produces pink flowers. The foliage is burgundy and purple in color.

More about ZhuZhou Loropetalum

Noteworthy Characteristics

ZhuZhou is one of if not the tallest growing of the Loropetalums.  It has dark maroon colored foliage that is retained year round. Also known as the Chinese Fringe Tree, this beautiful foliage is an excellent contrast with the fringe-like, fuchsia color flowers produced in abundance during late winter and early spring, and sporadically in fall. 

Uses

Its taller height and upright growth habit make ZhuZhou Loropetalum perfect for use as a single- or multi-stem specimen tree. It can also be useful as a tall, colorful hedge or as espalier (trained to grow flat against an open wall).

Culture

ZhuZhou thrives in full sun however, as with other Loropetalums, it will tolerate a fair amount of shade. Too much shade and foliage color and flowering will be diminished.  As with other Loropetalums, ZhuZhou prefers moist, but well drained, rich humusy, acidic soil, but it seems to adapt to less than ideal conditions. It is one of the most cold hardy varieties available.
