Loropetalum chinense rubrum 'Blush' or 'Razzleberry'
Loropetulums originated in China, Japan, and parts of southeast Asia. This Blush variety, also known as Razzleberry, was developed from one of two pink flowering types first introduced in the US in 1989.
The other was 'Burgundy,' which we also carry. Blush is the smaller and more compact of the two (and, per Rodney makes the better formed patio tree).
It has bronze-red new growth that later turns dark-olive green and produces bright pinkish-red flowers in early spring. Use for specimen, in back border, or as hedge.
