Mature height is about 6 feet with an equal width however plants respond every well to pruning so can be can be maintained at half that size.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 6 feet tall and wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, the Purple Diamond Loropetalum is ideal for use 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 Asian theme gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedge;  10 feet or more for space between plants
