Loropetalum Chinense Var Rubrum 'Fire Dance' (Loropetalum)

Loropetalum Chinense Var Rubrum 'Fire Dance' (Loropetalum)

Purple foliage and pink flowers

Forming a bushy mound of evergreen purple foliage, this handsome shrub also produces pink, witch hazel-like flowers from late winter to mid-spring. These have a sweet scent and offer a pretty contrast to the colourful foliage. Originating from woodlands in China, Japan and Burma, they will benefit from a partially shaded spot with protection from the worst of the winter weather.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to April
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)
