The Purple Pixie Loropetalum has richly colored deep purple-burgundy leaves on compact, gracefully weeping branches. Delicate pink flowers in the summer. The purple pixie makes for a beautiful low hedge or anywhere you need some beautiful contrast in the landscape. Semi-deciduous.
The Purple Pixie Loropetalum is a landscaper favorite. Unmatched rich, purple-burgundy color on a dense low, rounded form with vibrant hot pink, fringe-like flowers in the Summer. Smaller and lower growing than most other varieties. Graceful low arching branches have a spreading and slightly cascading habit, making this a superb foundation or low informal hedge plant. Beautifully accents the landscape and provides rich contrast with other plants and perennials such as Lime Mound spirea, blue spruce varieties, dwarf ornamental grasses, and colorful foliage perennials like huchera and hosta. Semi-deciduous in Oklahoma.
Provide well-drained soil, slightly acidic and rich in organic matter. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
