Special Attributes

With it's dense, mounding form and outstanding evergreen foliage and flower color, Purple Pixie® Loropetalum is just the plant we've been looking for...for decades. Growing to only about 2 feet in height with a spread of 3-4 feet, Purple Pixie 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, witch hazel-like, fringe flowers are produced in spring, providing a stunning contrast to the the purple, evergreen foliage.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With its low and mounding form, Purple Pixie Loropetalum fits perfectly as an accent in smaller garden spaces or solo in pots, planters and other containers. In the landscape, Purple Pixie is ideal for use as a border, in groupings, or mass plantings.  Use it where a low plant is needed in home foundation plantings, as a border along walkways and paths, to cascade over walls, and as a groundcover on embankments, hillsides and slopes. Purple Pixie is one of a very few Loropetalum cultivars that works very well in pots and planters, where it's weeping branches will cascade beautifully over the edges of pots.




Cultural Preferences

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 be problematic. So make sure to plant in a well-drained site. In our gardens, we've found that Purple Pixie® Loropetalum grows well in full sun or part shade. It has also shown exceptional tolerance to drought, heat, humidity, insects and disease. Purple Pixie® Loropetalum requires no pruning to keep its dense, mounding form. That said, a stray branch can be snipped any time of year to keep the plant tidy.
