Also commonly referred to as Chinese Fringe-flower, the name ‘Loropetalum’ comes from the Greek words for ‘strap’ and ‘petal.’ This was a reference to the thin, ribbon blooms characteristic of the group. Interestingly enough, fringe-flowers also belong to the Witch-hazel family of plants.
Green Loropetalums with white blooms came to America in 1880, but the species remained largely unknown. Later, the purple leaf, pink blooming variety came onto the scene, and swept across the United States. They have remained popular ever since, and aren’t likely to go anywhere anytime soon.
