Cerise Charm Loropetalum
Loropetalum chinense 'Kurobijin' PP 23,176
Cerise Charm is well behaved, rounded loropetalum. Its cascading branches are covered in dark plum, almost black leaves, and spider-like dark Cherise flowers.
Blooms are heavy in spring, of course, and also appear occasionally in summer and again in fall. They bloom 2 - 4 weeks later than other varietals giving blooms better frost protection. Leaves will keep color even in the summer heat.
