This plant's unique combination of color and texture makes it a standout addition to any landscape, where it can be used as a specimen, border planting, or even as a foundation planting.
The Red Diamond Loropetalum is a compact, mounding shrub that typically reaches a height of 4 to 6 feet and a similar spread.

This hardy plant is suitable for USDA zones 7 to 10 and thrives in well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Its ability to tolerate a variety of conditions makes it a versatile choice for a wide range of garden settings.
One of the most striking features of the Red Diamond Loropetalum is its foliage. The leaves are oval-shaped and emerge in a deep, ruby-red hue, maturing to a rich burgundy color that provides year-round interest.

These delicate, spidery blossoms appear in clusters and provide a striking contrast to the plant's dark, burgundy foliage.
