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