Crimson Fire Dwarf Loropetalum
( chinese fringe )
Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'PIILC-I' PPAF
Crimson Fire' brings year-round interest to the garden! Reaching just 2 to 3 feet high, this semi-evergreen flowering shrub is ideal for small spaces and in foundation plantings. Its compact, mounding habit of red to burgundy foliage adds welcome color throughout the year, and spring brings lovely neon pink blooms that are a delight for butterflies and hummingbirds.
This Chinese Fringe Flower is easy to grow and adaptable to most conditions, although it does perform best in well-drained soils. Since its habit tends to be somewhat spreading, some gardens are even using it as a groundcover. And of course its manageable size makes it a great candidate for container growth as well.
