Ever Red Loropetalum
The Reddest Blooms on a Loropetalum!
If you're looking to add a gorgeous pop of color to your garden, deck or patio, the Ever Red Loropetalum is the perfect way to do it. As an evergreen, it keeps its beautiful foliage year-round for a look that is truly unique and impressive in any setting.
Colorful and Cheery
Ever Red Loropetalum blooms late in the spring season with true red flowers that contrast beautifully with the plant's burgundy foliage that is leathery to the touch. The blooms typically occur in the spring, but the plant has been known to bloom year round. The flowers are fragrant and spidery in appearance, making an excellent addition to walkways leading up to the house or toward a garden.
Screens, Hedges and Topiary
There are many ways to use the Ever Red Loropetalum plant, including as borders, hedges, screens or even just as a pop of color among greenery. One cool fact about the plant is it can be trained through regular cutting to form small topiary or tree forms. Ever Red Loropetalum also fares well as a container plant.
Deer and Drought Tolerant
After the initial roots are developed through excellent soil and water care, the plant is pretty tolerant of droughts. Another plus is its resistance to disease and mildew, so there's no need to break out the sprays. It's also deer-tolerant, making it one of the more hardier screen plants for your garden.
Pruning the Plant
If you choose to prune Ever Red Loropetalum, it is best to do so in the late spring after it has already flowered. While it can be pruned throughout the year, do so lightly. Too much pruning, especially in the fall or winter months, can lead to less blooms the following spring.
