Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum (Loropetalum chinense 'Irodori' JAZZ HANDS®) bursts into bloom with a kaleidoscope of color that starts at its flowers and continues to its leaves! Also commonly called "fringe flower," loropetalum shrubs typically have solid-color foliage, but the leaves on Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum are as colorful as its flowers. The mature leaves are striking in purple, but the new growth emerges with a stunning pink-and-white marbled variegation!
A Winning Combination
• Evergreen. Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum doesn't have run-of-the-mill green leaves; the "green in "evergreen" simply means that the leaves remain on the plants year-round instead of being shed in autumn. This means you'll see the variegated new leaves and the purplish older leaves on shrubs at the same time!
• Pink flowers. Frilly fuchsia-pink flowers cover these shrubs in spring.
• Deer-resistant. When a plant has high ornamental value -- beautiful flowers and beautiful foliage -- it's often very attractive to hungry deer. But Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum is refreshingly deer-resistant, which is great news for rural gardeners.
Garden Uses/Design Tips
Plant Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum where you'll enjoy its colorful spring display as well as its year-round purple foliage. With a mature height of up to 6 feet, Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum is a stellar specimen plant, which you can feature as a focal point in a flower bed. Space plants 4 to 5 feet apart to form a living fence along the sides of your yard. Surround your deck or patio with Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum shrubs to soften the edges of wood or masonry structures.
• Sun. Full sun (at least 6 hours daily) is optimal. As with most variegated plants, shading from the harsh afternoon sun helps the white variegation to remain clear, without browning or crisping.
• Soil. Slightly acidic to neutral soil is best. Your local Extension Service office can analyze your soil and recommend any needed adjustments to its pH.
• Water. Moist (but not soggy) well-draining soil is the perfect combination.
• Fertilizer. You only need to fertilize once each spring. Use a slow-release fertilizer that's formulated for flowering landscape plants and follow all label recommendations.
• Pruning. Unlike some flowering shrubs that need to be pruned to look their best (and promote the most blooms), Jazz Hands Variegated Loropetalum never needs pruning! It grows naturally into a full shape with dense growth. If you want to do a little pruning to shape your plants, trim them soon after they finish blooming so they'll have plenty of time to form flower buds before the next season's spectacular display!
