Crimson Fire Loropetalum is a beautiful evergreen shrub from the First Editions collection, known for its striking deep burgundy-red foliage that retains its color all year round. This plant typically grows to a height of 4 feet and a width of 4-5 feet at maturity.

The leaves of Crimson Fire Loropetalum are oval-shaped providing a unique texture and visual interest in the landscape. This plant also produces small, pink fringe-like flowers in the spring, adding a pop of color to the foliage.

Crimson Fire Loropetalum is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for and can be used in a variety of landscaping applications. It is particularly well-suited for use as a hedge, border plant or specimen plant in mixed borders. It can also be used in mass plantings to create a bold, dramatic effect.

    I have been trying to get a good looking Crimson Fire for over a year. The two I purchased from another site before discovering PBM were lopsided and just not what I was hoping for as foundation plants. I discovered PBM and put myself on their waitlist and ordered two more when notified they were in stock. The plants were healthy but also really lopsided. I have decided that this is a First Editions problem rather than the vendors. This plant ticks all the boxes on my wish list for a foundation plant so I am bummed that I am going to have to give up on it as I cannot seem to obtain a plant that looks even slightly like the one in Horttubes video.
