USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-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

Ruby Parfait is a tough but beautiful Loropetalum that features uniquely variegated burgundy new leaves speckled in white and pink! This cultivar produces LOADS of sparkling, bright fuschia tassel-like flowers late winter into spring and sporadically thereafter through the season on mounding shrubs 5 to 6 feet tall and wide. As with most other Loropetalum, Ruby Parfait responds well to pruning so can be kept to a smaller size.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 5-6 feet tall and wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, Ruby Parfait 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 deep colored foliage contrasts nicely with plants that have yellow, light green, grey or other light colored foliage or flowers. A fine addition to purple or red theme color gardens and large containers with a rim diameter of 16 inches or more. 

Spacing:  5' for solid hedge;  10' or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Ruby Parfait 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 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.
