Red Wine Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinensis 'Little Moore'

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

Red Wine Loropetalum displays intense deep wine-purple foliage color throughout all four seasons! In spring, the vibrant, red witchhazel-like fringe flowers that nearly cover the foliage are an extra-added bonus. Reblooms sporadically in summer and again in fall. With a mature size of  about 6 feet tall and equally as wide, and about half that size with occasional pruning or shearing, Red Wine is excellent for use as a hedge or accent in home foundation plantings and landscape borders.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 5 to 6 feet tall and wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, Red Wine Loropetalum is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or in straight or staggered rows in sunny to partially shaded home foundation plantings and landscape borders. The year round deep purple foliage contrasts nicely with plants that have yellow, light green, grey or other light colored foliage or flowers. Its low water needs makes it suitable for use in Xeriscape plantings and is a fine addition to purple theme gardens and formal gardens. 

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

Cultural Preferences

Red Wine 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 requiring little if any supplemental irrigation. Requires no pruning however responds very well to almost any amount, which makes it a fine candidate for formal hedges.
