Sizzling Pink Fringe Flower

Loropetalum chinense 'Sizzling Pink'

SKU
05919
Clusters of rich, pink, fringed flowers bloom repeatedly throughout the year. The showy new deep burgundy foliage matures to a lovely bronze-green, maintaining a purple tinge as it as it ages, creating a colorful year-round accent to the landscape. Works well for containers, borders, and foundation plantings, as a single specimen or in groupings.

Botanical Pronunciationlor-oh-PET-ah-lum chi-NEN-see
LoreLoropetalum is native to China but only recently brought into cultivation in the last few decades when selections and breeding in Asia have produced interesting parents of our mordern American hybrids and cultivars.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall, 4 to 5 ft. wide, in natural form.
Bloom TimeHeaviest in spring, repeating throughout the year.
Design IdeasThe perfect alternative to fuchsia in colder regions, where it may stay in the ground year-round. It's a double bonus with bronze foliage and bright pink flowers. Plant around the edges of shade gardens or at posts of overhead arbors and patio covers. Spot into your shrub and perennial beds to make them pop with color. Use as foundation planting around outdoor living spaces, where you and the hummingbirds will enjoy it up close. Makes a great patio, porch or balcony plant when grown in a big ceramic pot (avoid red clay, which will clash with both foliage and flowers).
