USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  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

Boasting handsome dark maroon purple foliage year round, Purple Daydream is a dwarf Loropetalum that produces LOADS of vibrant, almost-red flowers on a dense spreading mound to only 2 to 3 feet in height with a spread of 3 to 4 feet. The flowers are heavy in late winter into spring and repeat lighter in fall. As with all other Loropetalums the deer won't touch it!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 4 wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, the Purple Daydream Loropetalum is ideal for use 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 smaller size makes it a good fit for pots, planters and other containers. 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 gardens, Asian theme gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedge;  8 feet or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Purple Daydream Loropetalum is very easy to grow in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. Foliage is more dense in full sun. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. Established plants are exceptionally drought tolerant. When established, plants are exceptionally drought tolerant requiring little if any supplemental irrigation. Requires no pruning, however responds very well to almost any amount of it.
