Purple Leaf Loropetalum

Sometimes called Chinese or Red Fringe Flower because of their frilly pinkish red flowers that bloom along the branches, the Purple Leaf Loropetalum is a beautiful shrub whose rich burgundy red foliage makes it an excellent focal plant or impressive hedge.  The flowers are attractive to bees and the foliage is deer resistant.  Recommended for Zones 7-10 and loves full sun but can also handle partial shade.  They are easy to grow and tolerate a wide range of soils and landscape conditions.  Loropetalums can grow 6-8' tall with a width of up to 6-8’, but can be pruned to maintain a smaller size and shape.  Loropetalums here at Creekside Nursery are sold in a 3 gallon size.
