Additional Information

Fluffy scented flowers smother evergreen foliage. Happy in borders and container. There is no need to prune Loropetalum; however, you may wish to remove old, dead and diseased wood, trimming unkempt growth to retain a tidy shape. Once established, these pants are drought tolerant and will only require watering during prolonged periods of drought. Loropetalum will benefit from a winter mulch and some tender varieties may need extra winter protection.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
