Ruby-Red Color Stands Out in a Landscape
Loved for its sharp color contrast, the Crimson Fire Loropetalum is a plant for all seasons, thanks to ruby-red to burgundy foliage that stays vibrant throughout the year. This dwarf evergreen variety is ideal for small gardens, perennial borders, containers, or foundation plantings.
But evergreen foliage isn't all the Crimson Fire offers. It blooms in spring with vibrant, neon-pink flowers that stand out against its rich foliage and provide a welcome pop of color in green spaces or against neutral backdrops.
Growing up to 4 ft. tall and 4-5 ft. wide, the dwarf Crimson Fire has a compact size that's perfect small spaces or gardens. Plus, it's pest-free, disease-free, and deer-resistant, for low-maintenance growth.
Whether you’re looking for an standout accent, foundation, or container plant, the Crimson Fire Loropetalum will fit perfectly into your landscape, with year-round color, spring blooms and effortless growth.
The best part about your Crimson Loropetalum? It's been grown and nurtured with care at our nursery, before it ships to you. That means you'll get a happy, healthy shrub that's ready to grow on day one - shipped straight to your door.
Don't miss out on this effortless, evergreen color. Get your Crimson Fire Loropetalum today!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: You can plant the Crimson Fire Loropetalum at any time of the year in an area with full or partial sun. It prefers well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice as wide as your plant's shipped container, and equally as deep. Place your Loropetalum in the hole, and backfill with soil, tamping down to remove air pockets. Water well after planting.
2. Watering: Water your Loropetalum thoroughly after planting, and keep watering your bush once or twice a week until it establishes. Be sure to mulch the roots if you live in an area with extreme temperatures.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Crimson Fire Loropetalum with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in spring to ensure healthy growth.
4. Pruning: No pruning is needed, but the Loropetalum can tolerate heavy pruning if you want to shape it, remove dead branches, or conform with your landscape setting. Pruning is best done after the flowering season - avoid pruning in early spring or winter.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Review of latest delivery
My plants where delivered standing up right and directly in the sun which caused breakage to the product and extremely dry plants. I read a review about a, Black Night bush that arrived with breaks which has caused it to grow unevenly-I have had the same, but believe with some time it will grow appropriately. I will continue to purchase product from this company for the time being, but would like to ask that more specific delivery directions be given.
We're so sorry to hear how they left your plants! If you have any concerns at all, please let us know and we'll be happy to assist you!
