A larger sized member of the Loropetalum family, the rich burgundy foliage of the Loropetalum Zhuzhou makes a striking statement.
Chinese Fringe Flower can be used as a privacy hedge, border planting, or small multi trunk evergreen tree bringing a burst of color to your landscape any time of the year!
Its leaves are dark burgundy to purple black throughout spring and fall. In early spring, stacked fuchsia Chinese fringe-like blooms appear which gives it the nickname Fringe Flower. The bright pink fringe flowers light up their landscapes during the spring growing season.
This evergreen shrub is such a pretty sight! The dark maroon foliage contrasts the hot pink flowers perfectly and stays dark for most of the year. Most elegantly seen as a tall hedge or screen, or used as a foundation planting or mass planting. Our favorite way to grow it is as a zhuzhou loropetalum tree!
