Is Loropetalum An Evergreen? [Solved]

Loropetalum Chinense, an evergreen shrub grows up to 10-15 feet tall with a smaller or similar width. The 100-year old specimens at Aiken, which are now 35 feet tall, show that it can reach higher heights. The leaves are loose and slightly open with an oval to vase-shaped shape. The simple, finely toothed to entire (smooth-edged) leaves are 1- to 2½-inches long and arranged alternately on somewhat arching branches 😁 The white to off-white or pink flowers are about one-inch long with petals that are 1/16th-inch wide 👍 The clustering of 3-6 blooms is common at the shoot tips as well as within leaf axils.

Too much shade shade directly under a tree or on the north side of your home can be a little too dark for the plant To make your plant look the best. Anthocyanin produces purple-coloured leaves when plants are exposed to sunlight. You can give Loropetalums half-days in sun if you’re in a sunny area. Morning sun can be a great way to allow your fringe flowers to enjoy the sunlight and not cause stress. This was modified by Charlie Laughlin, March 15, 2020. [2]

A new article by myperfectplants.comDig two times as large a hole as your nursery pot. Mound up some soil in the middle of the hole, 3-6” high, and place the center of the root mass on top of the mound. The roots should be spread outwardly in the hole. Do not fill the hole below the original nursery pot. You should not fertilize or amend the soil. Backfilling may require you to take the plant apart. A little bit too much is better than too little. Give the root and hole a good soak after they are half filled. After the water has dried, adjust the height of the stem to finish filling the hole. You can gently tamp down the soil. [4]
