The Red Diamond™ Loropetalum is an upright evergreen that grows between 4 and 6 feet tall, with dense growth. It looks exotic but it isn’t delicate at all, and it’s easy to grow. The foliage is colored all year round – red in spring and purple-red for the rest of the year. It flowers in early spring with the brightest and clearest red blooms of all the varieties of this plant. It is amazingly showy, and perfect for accents, specimens in borders, colorful hedges or in planter boxes in hot zones.

  • Rich red spring new growth on an upright shrub
  • Turns purple red in summer and fall, but never green
  • Brilliant carmine-red flowers in spring
  • Makes a great specimen or dynamite hedge plant
  • Exotic looking, but easy to grow

The Red Diamond™ Loropetalum grows well in all the warmest parts of the country. It grows in full sun, partial shade, and even in light full shade. Moist, rich, well-drained and slightly acidic soil is the ideal, but it is tough enough to grow in all ordinary garden conditions except flooded places and very alkaline soils. Pests, diseases and deer all leave it alone, and it doesn’t need trimming to stay bushy, but it won’t mind if you insist – do it in spring as the flowers fade.
