More about Purple Diamond Loropetalum...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Purple Diamond Loropetalum boasts the most intense purple foliage color of any plant on the market! Vibrant pink, 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 pink flowers. Mature height is about 4 to 5 feet with an equal spread. It can be pruned or sheared year-round for a more formal shape or to limit size.

Uses

Purple Diamond Loropetalum is useful as a foundation plant, a colorful low hedge, an accent, or in small to large groupings in landscape beds.

Culture

Purple Diamond Loropetalum is easy to grow and low maintance. Plant it in locations that provide well-drained soils and full sun to part shade. In our trial gardens, we've had Purple Diamond growing in sites that provide anywhere from full sun to half a days shade. It grows a little fuller and foliage color is a little more intense with more sun. Though not picky about soil type, well drained soil is essential for this plant. Pruning is minimal unless you want to shear it into a more formal shape.

I ordered 6 shrubs in late October for my home in NC. I planted them the first week in November and lost 1 over this very rough winter. Will be sure not to wait so long in the season next time. The rest are looking good this spring. I paired with lemon ball plants on a retainer wall beside my pool.

My original loropetalums were damaged by severe cold temperatures. They were in half barrels and the soil probably was colder than in the ground. These Purple Diamonds are one of my favorite plants so I will take steps to make sure it doesnt happen again. The plants arrived in perfect condition - nice packing.
