Ever Red® fringe flower

Loropetalum chinense 'Chang Nian Hong'

Ever Red® Loropetalum  

This new, compact loropetalum has the reddest blooms of all cultivars. Dark burgundy foliage retains its color throughout the year. Great for specimen planting, mass plantings and borders.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsDark foliage creates a wonderful contrast with all colors in the garden. Blooms are true red.

CarePrune after flowering in late spring. Light pruning can be done throughout the year. Pruning in fall and winter reduces the flowering in spring. Ideally soil should be kept moist, but this cultivar can handle dry conditions once established.
