The Carolina Midnight Loropetalum is a large growing shrub reaching 10-15′ H x 8-10′ W. This Loropetalum has year-round dense very dark burgundy-purple rounded foliage that provides a great platform for the spring blooms to really pop. New foliage when it first begins to emerge will have a reddish-maroon color before darkening. This is a popular choice for planting a large foundation, medium sized screen, or hedge in the landscape, and can also be trained into a small tree or espalier. This shrub is generally not bothered by drought once established, insects, or deer.
For a seamless planting, plant your Carolina Midnight 4 feet apart. Space them 8+ feet for gaps between plants.
Planting tips for Acid Loving Plants
I’m giving 4 stars because the plant arrived late and heavily damaged. However Christy was very gracious and gave me a full refund. I appreciate the excellent customer service provided by plantsbymail.com and I wouldn’t hesitate to order from them again.

I was amazed when this plant slid out of its box. It is more beautiful in person than expected. I was instantly in love, and still am. Arrived in great condition. A sizeable, substantial plant that will look brilliant in the garden.
