Sizing guide
Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous, also known as Loropetalum chinense 'Plum Gorgeous,' is a popular ornamental shrub valued for its attractive foliage and delicate flowers. It is a compact, evergreen shrub that typically grows to a height 0.9 to 1.2 meters with a similar spread. It has deep purple, burgundy, or plum-colored leaves that are oval-shaped and glossy. The foliage retains its color throughout the year, adding a vibrant touch to the landscape.
Flowers in early spring, Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous produces clusters of fragrant, spidery flowers. The flowers are typically pink, but the specific shade can vary depending on the cultivar. They stand out against the dark foliage and add an extra dimension of beauty to the plant. This shrub thrives in well-draining soil and prefers a location with full sun to partial shade. It is relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including sandy or clay soils. However, it's important to ensure that the soil doesn't become waterlogged.
Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous benefits from regular pruning to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth. Pruning can be done after flowering to remove any dead or damaged branches and to shape the plant if desired. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the shrub helps to conserve moisture and suppress weed growth.
Due to its compact size and striking foliage, Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous is often used as a specimen plant in gardens or landscapes. It can also be grown in containers, making it suitable for patios or balconies. Additionally, it can be planted as a hedge or incorporated into mixed shrub borders.
Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous tolerate mild frosts, but it may require protection in colder regions. If you live in a colder climate, you can grow it in containers and bring it indoors during winter.
