Description

The Daruma Loropetalum is a delightful, compact shrub that provides dark ruby color all year around.

Features:
The deep ruby red foliage fades from burgundy to hunter green, providing color for all those little spaces that need a little extra pizazz! Spring gives way to beautiful, fringed, hot pink flowers that is irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds. The compact and mounding habit of the dwarf Daruma allows it to stay small, but don’t let the size fool you because the color this shrub display begs for attention. Only reaching a height of 2-3 feet, this shrub is ideal for small spaces! The stunning variation of color will be unforgettable, especially when the pin wheeled, neon pink flowers start to bloom.

Care: Plant in well drained soil. Keep fertilized with a high quality slow release fertilizer year round. There is no pruning required, but feel free to prune or trim as desired for shape. The Daruma requires only minimal maintenance.

How To Care

Plant the Daruma Loropetalum anytime of the year. Just take care to water more often when planting in summer.

This loropetalum thrives in full to part sun and is adaptable, but prefers slightly acidic, moist but well-drained soil. Water thoroughly when planted. Provide a deep watering once or twice per week until established. Once established Loropetalum are fairly drought tolerant and only need water during dry spells. They do tend to flower better in a soil that is kept slightly moist. Add 2-3 inches of mulch when planting. Mulch will protect the roots in extreme temperatures and keep the soil moist. Fertilize in spring with a slow release, balanced fertilizer like the one we carry. No pruning is necessary. However, Loropetalum can tolerate heavy pruning if you prefer. After your bush is done flowering is the best time to prune. This shrub does flower on old wood so avoid heavy pruning in winter or early spring.

Two Thumbs up for Daruma Loropetalum & The Planting Tree!

Very pleased with shrub. Full shape; good size & roots in great shape -- not root bound at all. Looks like I got it at a local farm! Arrived in great shape - packaging kept shrub protected and roots moist. Very happy with my purchase & The Planting Tree!
