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. Best in full sun or part shade with occasional watering. Hardy to 15-20 F. The white flowering natural form (Loropetalum chinense var. chinense) is noted as coming from the wilds of China, India and Japan but Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum was first described from material of garden origin and has been widely cultivated in southern China. For more information on cultivation and the species, see our listing of the white flowering Loropetalum chinense. We have grown this nice dark selection since 1999 and is very similar to Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Hines Purple Leaf', but perhaps has slightly darker leaves.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Purple Majesty'.
