Jazz Hands® variegated Chinese fringe-flower (Loropetalum chinense ‘irodori’)
Genus:  Loropetalum

All you can say about the flowers and foliage this shrub sports is, “Wow.” The purple leaves appear to be splatterpainted with white, pink, and light green, giving the entire plant a mottled appearance. When the bright magenta flowers emerge in late spring to early summer, it looks like this medium-size shrub has decided to put on its own fourth of July fireworks show.

Noteworthy Characteristics: 

Jazz Hands™ has enormous strength and form, and adds great contrast alongside of other shrubs.

Care: 

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is particular about its soil conditions, with a strong preference for rich, acidic soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.  After your Jazz Hands are fiished flowering, it is recommended that you prune them.


 

Problems:
