Southern Living Plant Collection Loropetalum Red Diamond Shrub


(1 customer review)

The Red Diamond Loropetalum is another tremendous evergreen shrub from the Southern Living Plant Collection! The Red Diamond Loropetalum produces candy red blooms in early spring. These are truly the reddest blooms of all loropetalum cultivars, and they contrast beautifully with their dark foliage. Watch these blossoms engulf the shrub, completely changing its appearance during the bloom cycle. After the considerable initial bloom, this loropetalum will periodically rebloom from early summer to fall. Meanwhile, the purple and burgundy leaves hold their color all year long, providing dynamic color in any landscape.

New growth emerges in spring as a soft purple before maturing to dark purple to burgundy.

The Red Diamond Loropetalum reaches a mature size of 6′ tall and 6′ wide. Therefore, this variety won’t engulf its surroundings like some other Loropetalums. Additionally, this naturally compact growth habit ensures that pruning is optional or infrequent.

Use this low-maintenance shrub as a hedge, container, accent, or mass planting!
