Variety Profile

An evergreen shrub with unusual ornamental foliage.  New growth appears as burgundy ageing to tones of bronze and olive green offering year round interest in the gardenscape.  In addition striking lolly-pink, tassle-like flowers are borne in spring with spot flowering occuring throughout the year.

Cultural Care

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.
