The Crimson Fire Loropetalum from the First Editions collection of plants is a truly compact Loropetalum with a mature size of 2-4’H x 2-4′ W. This controlled growth habit is perfect for planting as low-maintenance foundations, hedges, accents, or in small garden spaces. The Ruby red foliage stays true to color all year around which is great for creating interest in the landscape in the winter months. In spring this Loropetalum produces vibrant neon pink ribbon blooms that really help ignite your landscape in spring!
For a seamless planting, space your Crimson Fire Loropetalum 2 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 5+ feet apart.

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.
