Sizzling Pink Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinensis  'Sizzling Pink'

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 is not 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

Sizzling Pink Loropetalum, commonly called Chinese fringe-flower or Chinese witch hazel, is an evergreen flowering shrub that provides year round color in the garden. In late winter or early spring, a profusion of bright pink fringe-like flowers literally smother this mid-size shrub that matures over time to 6-10' tall and 5-8' wide (depending on pruning). The stunning flower show is followed by the emergence of attractive deep burgundy new leaves that turn to a lovely bronze-green with purple tinge.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing naturally to about 5 to 10 feet tall and wide, or kept smaller with occasional pruning, Sizzling Pink 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. It's 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 large containers with a rim diameter of 16 inches or more. 

Spacing:  4-5' for solid hedge;  12' or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Sizzling Pink 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 Purple Diamond® 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.
