Ever Red Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Chang Nian Hong' (EVER RED®) PPAF

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone 

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Loropetalum variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring. Requires a well-lit space for overwintering indoors.



Special Attributes

Ever Red, formerly known as 'Ever Red Sunset', was the first variety of Loropetalum on the market to produce true-red flowers instead of the usual pink, fuchsia or white flowers produced by other varieties in the genus. The spring flowers have no pink in them - just red hot, and loads of them! 

Even though a couple other red-flowering varieties have come along, Ever Red is still one our favorites because it displays the deepest burgundy (almost black) foliage of any Loropetalum we've seen.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 5 to 6 feet tall and wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, Ever Red Loropetalum is an ideal choice as an accent, in groupings or mass plantings, or in straight or staggered rows as a hedge in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. Its low water needs makes it suitable for use in Xeriscape plantings. The year round deep purple (almost black) foliage contrasts nicely with plants that have yellow, light green, grey or other light colored foliage or flowers. A fine addition to black or red theme gardens and large containers with a rim diameter of 16 inches or more. 

Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedge;  8 feet or more a[art for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Ever Red Loropetalum is very easy to grow in most any average, most but well-drained soil and full sun to part shade. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. So make sure to plant in a well-drained site. When established, plants are exceptionally drought tolerant, requiring little if any supplemental irrigation. Foliage is more dense in full sun. Requires no pruning, however responds very well to almost any amount, making it an excellent choice for hedges.
