Loropetalum usually blooms from late winter through spring and then sporadically through the summer. You can prune in early summer (June) to coax the plants into a hedge shape. Waiting until early summer means you can enjoy their blooms as long as possible. After pruning they probably won't bloom for a month or two.

Best wishes with your landscape!
