Plant uses

A highly ornamental shrub for most garden situations. Native to China, Japan and South-eastern Asia, loropetalum is naturally suited to asian themed gardens and is ideal for a feature specimen in these environments. They are equally at home in a sunny, shrub border and make a terrific feature if dotted along drives or pathways. They can add interest to rockeries as well as around pools or entertainment areas.

  • Add permanent structure and colour to mixed borders.
  • General garden use or large containers.
  • Long season of interest for entertainment areas.
  • Oriental style landscapes.

Cultural care

Select a sunny to part shade location in a well drained soil.  A light trim after flowering will help to maintain a neat and compact shape.  An application of slow release fertiliser during early spring will be beneficial to overall performance.  Can be grown in tubs.
