Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established, requiring little if any supplemental irrigation.

Nice Packaging
My original loropetalums were damaged by severe cold temperatures. They were in half barrels and the soil probably was colder than in the ground. These Purple Diamonds are one of my favorite plants so I will take steps to make sure it doesnt happen again. The plants arrived in perfect condition - nice packing.
