Crimson Fire Loropetalum

The first truly compact fringe flower! 

Look out boxwood, Crimson Fire Loropetalum is about to take over your garden spot! This ruby-red fringe flower is the first truly compact red-leaf Loropetalum and it will breathe a new energy into your hedges and borders. It needs no trimming to keep its bushy good looks and maintains its beautiful ruby color year-round.

These compact plants are very neat and tidy. They are surprising (in a good way!) in a sunny row to line a pathway, as specimen plants in a perennial border and even as the thriller in a container. Perfectly sized for smaller urban gardens, they never fail to bring compliments.

Crimson Fire is pretty enough to stand out because of the richly colored leaves, but well-behaved enough to blend in and showcase other shrubs and flowers in the garden. Try it with yellows and whites or blues and purples for a bold garden statement. Plant it with Nikko Blue hydrangeas and Silver Carpet Snow-in-summer for a fresh riff on a classic patriotic cottage look.

As a bonus, Crimson Fire covers itself in interesting fringed flowers that are a vibrant neon pink in the spring.

If you’re looking for something that isn’t the norm for your foundation plantings, something that will really stand out all year, order a few Crimson Fire Loropetalum for your landscape today!
