Loropetalum Chinensis grows well in organically rich, gritty, acidic soil with good drainage and is very adaptable to less than ideal conditions. Loropetalum has few pests and requires no pruning except to maintain desired size or in your case to maintain its Bonsai Form. I would prune it after the blooms have dissipated. The plant will also benefit with a fertilizing 2 or 3 times a year. Keep in mind this plant does best in zones 7 to 10. Hope this helps and good luck!
