Jazz Hands Variegated® Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinensis  'Trodori' PP 27713 - Jazz Hands Variegated®

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

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Loropetalum 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

Jazz Hands Variegated® is the first variegated Loropetalum! This beauty has dark purple foliage with new growth that is splashed with pink and white variegation. Its vibrant pink, witchhazel-like fringe flowers are heavy in spring, appear occasionally in summer, and again in fall. Mature height is about 4 to 6 feet with an equal spread, depending on pruning. It can be pruned or sheared year-round for a more formal shape or to limit size.

Landscape & Garden Uses

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

Spacing:  4' for solid hedge;  8' or more for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

Jazz Hands Variegated® 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 Purple Diamond® 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.
