 Loropetalum chinense 'Purple Diamond'

Purple Diamond is typical of all loropetalums, except that it is dwarf in form. Its cascading branches are covered in dark purple-red leaves and spider-like dark magenta flowers.

Blooms are heavy in spring, of course, and also appear occasionally in summer and again in fall. Purple Diamond is a recent introduction and is the first loropetalum with leaves that are completely purple on both top and underside of leaves.                                            *Deer Resistant*
