Dazzling Hot Pink Flowers
With its striking leaves and delicate flowers, the Burgundy Loropetalum shrub gives your garden or foundation planting an unexpected pop of color. This dense shrub's burgundy foliage and hot pink flowers add contrast to your landscape.
Burgundy Loropetalum is also known as the fringe tree, due to one of its more eye-catching features. Small but exceptionally vivid, the hot pink flowers have petals that look like dangling fringe. It blooms most heavily in the spring, but continues to provide flowers all season long.
The flowers are just the icing on the cake. The main attraction of this shrub is its foliage. A deep, rich Bordeaux color infuses the leaves. Burgundy Loropetalum provides a contrasting background for green plants like ferns and hostas, as well as brightly hued flowers.
Burgundy Loropetalum is a fast-growing evergreen shrub that grows to a mature size of about 4-5 feet tall with about a 4 foot spread, and an open, weeping appearance. It can be trimmed to maintain a more compact size or a more formal shape. It prefers full to part sun for the best flowering and leaf color. It doesn't like soggy soil but will tolerate a cooler zone. It’s hardy into zone 9.
