Details ‘Red Dragon’ is an evergreen shrub, reaching 1.5m, with small, round, slightly puckered, pinkish-red leaves that turn a deep burgundy colour when temperatures fall. Mature plants produce small, white, scented, cup-shaped flowers with a mass of stamens in late summer, followed by black berries.
Plant ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the soil.
Remove dead, diseased or misplaced branches in late winter or early spring, otherwise very easy to grow. If grown as hedging, prune in spring and mid summer – Lophomyrtus is tolerant of severe pruning.
