Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Purple Majesty' (Red Fringe Flower) - Rounded, evergreen shrub with graceful, arching branches to 6 to 8 feet tall. Can be used in a variety of ways - in mass plantings as a hedge, as a specimen tree or as a patio tree. Bright fuchsia fringe flowers appear in masses in spring and then throughout the year. New growth is a dark burgundy, ultimately maturing to a brilliant purple. Hardy to 15-20 F. This nice dark selection is very similar to 'Hines Purple Leaf' but it seems to remain darker.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Loropetalum 'Purple Majesty' .
