Loropetalum Growing Tips

Light: Prefers full sun to partial shade. Best flower production and leaf color in full sun, although this plant appreciates some afternoon shade. Shelter from cold winds and provide winter protection.

Soil: Thrives in well-drained, acidic to neutral soil. Enriching with organic matter can improve growth.

Watering: Requires regular watering, especially during dry spells. Established plants have moderate drought tolerance.

Fertilizing: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring. Avoid over-fertilizing to prevent excessive growth at the expense of flowering.

Pruning: Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape and encourage bushier growth. Avoid heavy pruning as it can reduce flowering.

Propagation: Can be propagated from semi-hardwood cuttings taken in late summer.

Pests and Diseases: Generally pest-resistant. Watch for aphids and scale insects. Root rot can occur in poorly drained soils.
