our loropetalums suffered from Gustav.It just about up rooted them.I lightly pruned them pulled them straight with twine.I put dirt back on the roots. The ones that got the least wind look ok. The other ones are droping there leaves. Look bad !! What can I do??

Now that you've replanted and staked them, all you can do is wait to see if your loropetalums are strong enough to recover. Drooping and tattered leaves will still be able to help the plants (through photosynthesis) so just leave the plants alone for now. If they are strong enough to recover, you'll see new growth in the spring. Let's hope for the best!
