More about Plum Delight Loropetalum...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Plum Delight Loropetalum, also known as Chinese Witchazel, is a fast growing evergreen shrub that produces an abundance of bright fuchsia-pink fringe flowers in spring and sporadically throught the year that contrast beautifully with the deep burgundy foliage. Unlike some other purple-leaved varieties, Plum Delight retains its leaf coloration on old and new growth. The new growth is almost as vivid as the flower color. 

Uses

Plum Delight Loropetalum grows 6 to 8 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

Plum Delight 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.

I was warned about how this plant might not make it in our climate but was told by a Georgia native who used to work for a nursery SE of Atlanta that he'd planted a hedge of them in Seattle and they were gorgeous there. I live 90 miles north of Seattle near the Puget Sound and planted this in a spot with SW exposure up against the house so that it is blocked by our nasty winter winds that can come out of the Fraser River Valley in Canada. The plant has survived its first winter which was harsh by our standards and is currently blooming!
