In late autumn, the stunning new evergreen foliage makes a tidy rounded foil for the fluffy, scented pink flowers that smother it in winter and spring. Excellent for cutting, ideal for small town gardens and happy in containers and borders. Prefers moist but well-drained soil in part shade.
Care: Grow in a sheltered area in sun or light dappled shade. South to south-west facing is ideal. Loropetalum prefers a slightly acidic, humus-rich soil that retains moisture so add ericaceous compost to the planting hole or grow in a container. Keep well-watered.
