Plant the Purple Pixie® Loropetalum anytime of the year. Just take care to water more often when planting in summer.

This loropetalum thrives in full to part sun and is adaptable, but prefers slightly acidic, moist but well-drained soil. Water thoroughly when planted. Provide a deep watering once or twice per week until established. Once established Loropetalum are fairly drought tolerant and only need water durig dry spells. They do tend to flower better in a soil that is kept slightly moist. Add 2-3 inches of mulch when planting. Mulch will protect the roots in extreme temperatures and keep the soil moist. Fertilize in spring with a slow release, balanced fertilizer like the one we carry. No pruning is necessary. However, Loropetalum can tolerate heavy pruning if you prefer. After your bush is done flowering is the best time to prune. This shrub does flower on old wood so avoid heavy pruning in winter or early spring.

The Purple Pixie Loropetalum is an outstanding way to add year-round color to any style of landscape.  This low growing loropetalum looks great in a mixed bed.  With its short stature or 1-2 feet and spread of 4-5 feet, the Purple Pixie can even function as a truly unique ground cover.  The purple leaves are a superb contrast to any plant, green, blue, or yellow.  Even though this shrub is low to the ground it shines on its own or amongst other plants.  Try a low hedge, border, or mass planting for a colorful lasting look.  Plant about 4 feet apart for a tight hedge.

The Purple Pixie® works great on slopes. Try this weeping shrub in a hanging basket, window box, or any container!

Beautiful Purple plants

This was my first order from The Planting Tree and I could not have been happier with the plants. The email tracking, packaging, quality and condition of the plants on arrival, and final result in my garden. I am so happy that I have placed another order.
