Loropetalum chinense 'Suzanne'
The deep, reddish-maroon colored foliage is covered by masses of fragrant hot pink flower clusters in spring. Mature specimens have attractive peeling bark. Makes a fine accent, border, or screen plant. Mass together for an exciting display of color in the landscape. Prefers constantly moist, but well-drained soils. Full sun to part shade. Compact grower 4-6'tall and wide, but can be kept to 3 to 4 feet with some pruning.

Loropetalum chinense 'Ruby'
A compact, rounded evergreen shrub with shiny, ruby red young leaves. Pink, fringe flowers that bloom year round. Sun or dappled shade. Leaves are more rounded and undulating than other Loropetalum and is also among the smallest of the cultivars. 3-5 ft. tall and wide.
