The Q&A Archives: Loropetalum Care

Question: Please tell me how to care for a Loropetalum--Purple Fringe Shrub. Thank you.

Answer: Loropetalum is native to China and Japan. It grows 6'-10' high, has a neat and compact habit, producing tiers of arching branches with clusters of flowers at branch tips. Provide rich, well-draining soil, full sun or partial afternoon shade if your summers are hot, and regular watering during the growing season. Once established the plant can take any amount of pruning.
