The Purple Diamond Loropetalum is a more compact version of the standard loropetalum making it ideal as a low hedge or anywhere you need a gorgeous pop of rich, purple-burgundy contrasting color. Semi-deciduous.
The Purple Diamond Loropetalum combines colorful flowers and foliage with controlled growth, Purple Diamond is a gem. Unlike some other loropetalums that can swallow your house, this one grows 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Showy pink flowers appear in spring and sometimes summer. Deep, rich purple foliage holds its color all season. Makes an incredible semi-deciduous hedge and looks amazing next to contrasting hued plants like Lime Mound Spirea and Blue Spruce Globosal. Also looks lush and natural when mixed in with low grasses and perennials like Dwarf Maiden Miscanthus, Astilbe, and Huchera.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
