Revamping a tired foundation planting? Or simply want to squeeze as much value out of your landscape as you can?

Add this effortless superstar to your landscape this season. Chinese Fringe Flower (Loropetalum chinense 'Rubrum') delivers a lovely show all year-long.

Sweet, frilly bright pink-colored flowers make a delightful contrast against the dark reddish-purple foliage in early spring. These scented blooms are so eye-catching...but are never gaudy or overblown.

These broadleaved evergreens simply shine in spring while they are decorated with lovely pink flowers that resemble Star Magnolia. Consider trimming a few blooming branches to use indoors as lovely cut flower arrangements.

In fact, this variety is a member of the Witch Hazel family. This gives it its tolerance to partial shade and its irresistible allure for butterflies and beneficial pollinators.

The inspiring red spring growth matures into a classic olive-green. This shrub looks incredible against gray, stone and brick exteriors.

Nature Hills offers several varieties of Loropetalum to compliment this species. But this vase-shaped choice is the "real deal" for a fragrant flowering display, followed by crisp, clean foliage all year.

It's rugged durability ensures that you'll have a minimum of care requirements. Let them provide a sophisticated privacy screen for you and your family.

This exceptional choice adds value to your property. Entertain and relax with their stylish charm as a backdrop; you'll be thrilled with their performance year in and year out.

How to Use Chinese Fringe Flower in the Landscape

Define your property line with a beautiful flowering hedge. Keep them trimmed, or allow them to be natural and full.

To develop a solid row of these ornamental shrubs, plant them 30 inches apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.

They'll grow into a very modern foundation planting with color and charm. Include a pert edging of ornamental edible Bushel and Berry® Blueberry Glaze™ Blueberry or Top Hat Blueberries along the edge for a double helping of healthy fruit!

Chinese Fringe Flower can be thought of as an evergreen backbone. Bring handsome structure to your garden design year-round with their help.

Repeat them along the length of your shrub borders. Rely on them as a backdrop in your Butterfly Gardens. Mass several together in an effortless lawn planting.

Their lush, multi-stemmed growth habit provides cover and screening. But their accessible size won't make you feel like you're locked in a green prison.

Run a few of them behind your patio seating. You'll be pleased how much more relaxing the space becomes with their dark foliage.

Keep them in oversized garden containers for many years. They'll add an exquisite, high-end look to your balcony, patio or terrace.

This lovely shrub adds color on the sunny side of mature evergreen trees. Add a raised berm to get your new Chinese Fringe Flower shrubs established; and consider some of our Groundcover Sedum at their base to polish up the fully layered planting.

#ProPlant Tips for Care

Plant these low-maintenance shrubs in either full sun or partial shade.They require at least four hours of sunlight for best bloom.

Well-drained, slightly acidic soil is best. Elevate them in a raised bed or planting mound if you have poorly drained soil.

Apply a fertilizer for acid loving plants according to the directions. Mulch with pine straw or pine bark to a depth of three inches, and pull it back away from touching the stems.

Give a moderate amount of water on a consistent schedule. Use the Finger Test to determine the frequency...poke your finger into the soil to see if it is starting to get dry.

Prune to shape your Chinese Fringe Flower after the main flush of blooms are finished. You'll likely see sporadic reblooming through the summer months.

Every three years, prune out a few of the thickest, oldest branches out at ground level. Do this renewal pruning to keep your shrubs happy, vigorous and beautiful for many, many years.
