Loropetalum is also known as Chinese Fringe-Flower. It is a member of the Witchazel family. The name Loropetalum comes from the Greek words for strap and petal, referring to the long and thin petals of the plant blooms. What makes these plants so unique and desirable for gardeners is the rarity of an all-red shrub.
The Loropetalum is a native Chinese plant that was adapted before it became suitable to be grown in the United States. The kind that we see and plant in the United States is called Rubrum, a variety of Loropetalum that is often found in the wild. This natural shrub is beautiful and leaves no surprise as to why it is a best-selling must-have for gardeners.
Wholesale Loropetalums are very adaptable to light, they fare well in both full sun and full shade, and they are very easy to grow! These popular plants require no extra work for their beauty and color pop that they offer to any room.
