Loropetalum/chinese fringe plant - Knowledgebase Question

Question by tammiepeters

My loropetalum have become sparse with leaves and yellow/brown. I have added soil acidifier...should this help? If so, when should I see results? They used to be so lovely and purple and full of leaves. Only a few still look nice. Thank you.

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. It grows best in rich, well-draining soil, and will need partial afternoon shade because your summers are hot. Your loropetalum may be getting too much sunshine, or may just need a little pruning to encourage new growth. Hope this information helps!
