Sizzling Pink Fringe Flower
Loropetalum chinense 'Sizzling Pink'
Pronunciation: lor-oh-PET-ah-lum chi-NEN-see
|Description||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.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Heaviest in spring, repeating all year.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall, 4 to 5 ft. wide, in natural form.|
|Special Features||Dramatic Foliage Color, Easy Care, Compact Form|
|Flower Attributes||Fragrant, Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||The 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).|
|Companion Plants||Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina); Lilyturf (Liriope); Kohuhu (Pittosporum); Juniper (Juniperus); Camellia (Camellia)|
|Care||Provide well-drained soil, slightly acidic and rich in organic matter. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
|Lore||Loropetalum 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.|
