Purple Pixie® Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinensis  'Peack' PP 19916 - Purple Pixie

With it's dense, mounding form and outstanding foliage and flower color, Purple Pixie® Loropetalum is just the plant we've been looking for...for decades. Growing to only 2 feet in height with a spread of 3-4 feet, it boasts some of the most intense purple foliage color of any plant on the market, and the color doesn't fade during summer or winter or in sun or in shade. Vibrant pink, witchhazel-like, fringe flowers are produced in spring, provinding a stunning contrast to the the purple, evergreen foliage. 

When planted right, and in the right spot, Purple Pixie® Loropetalum is easy to grow and maintain. It must have well-drained soil. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soil can cause root rot or other harmful plant diseases. So make sure to plant Purple Pixie in a well-drained site. Regarding light needs, we've found that Purple Pixie® grows well in full sun or part shade. Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established, requiring little if any supplemental irrigation. Purple Pixie® requires no pruning to keep its dense, mounding form. A stray branch can be snipped any time of year to keep the plant tidy. USDA Zones: 7a-10b  Find Your Zone >

Healthy Plants
I love these plants. The purple pixie loropetalums arrived very healthy and nice looking. I have already ordered more plants from Wilson Brothers. I will continue to be a repeat customer! The quality of their plants are 2nd to none. ---------- WBG RESPONSE: Hi Amy - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review of your purchase. We love the Purple Pixie as well and have the first three plants that ever came off the "production line" growing in our gardens. They're still doing great to this day with very little care. Just make sure the soil drains well as they don't like constantly soggy or wet soil. We'll certainly appreciate any future business and always feel free to let us know if there's every anything else we can help you with. Plant long and prosper! - Brent Wilson | Wilson Bros Gardens

The plants were gorgeous - big and full - well cared for plants
Large healthy plants grew well all summer. Unfortunately, we had an extremely cold - colder than our normal winters where I lost plants I have had growing for 12+ years - and they froze out. I have already made another purchase from Wilson Bos. Gardens (these made it through winter) and will be placing orders in the future.
