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.
Select a sunny to part shade location in a well drained soil. Alight trim after flowering will help to maintain a neat and compact shape. An application of slow release fertiliser during early spring wil be beneficial to overall performance. Can be grown in large tubs with good quality potting mix.
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.
