About Purple Daydream® Dwarf Loropetalum

Sporting deep wine-hued leaves, the Purple Daydream Dwarf Loropetalum is a fantastic new addition to the Southern Living Plant Collection. This gorgeous shrub’s light and fluffy-seeming foliage stays a luscious purple all year long that never leaves your landscape looking bare. The Purple Daydream is a dwarf loropetalum that maxes out at a compact 2-3′ high and 3-4′ wide, leaving maintenance as the least of your worries. Spring sees the Daydream in full bloom with string clusters of ruby red stranded blossoms that cover the dense plum foliage. Plant the Purple Daydream Dwarf Loropetalum in well-drained acidic soil and fertilize in late spring to keep this bush happy and healthy.

Spacing Your Purple Daydream Dwarf Loropetalum 

For a seamless planting, space your Purple Daydream Dwarf Loropetalum 2 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 5+ feet apart.

    I received these plants and am very satisfied with them. The plants are beautiful with well developed roots and beautiful foliage. It remains to be seen how winter hardy they are in my area but i am very well pleased with them at this point.

    I recently placed another order with Plants by Mail, and couldn’t be more pleased with the actual plant and packaging. This most recent order along with my previous one arrived on schedule in boxes that carefully protected the plants. Each arrived in exceptional condition. After spending many days without success looking for the plants, I was elated with finding what I needed online and receiving such great products.

    Excellent little shrub for contrasting with green and yellow plants….I have four of these beauties. I’m impressed by the Southern Living Collection..and PlantsbyMail. The plants are healthy and shipped in a timely manner in excellent packaging. Recommended!

    when is best time to plant dwarf loropetalum purple daydream?

    • PBM Garden Expert

      Fall or Spring are both great times to plant. Depending on where you’re located, it may or may not be too late to plant right now (11/13/18). If you’re located in the deep south, you may still be able to plant them this year.

    So happy with the quality of these plants! Traveled well and look fabulous. I will order again from this company.

    Is Purple Daydream appropriate for Western North Carolina Zone 6 I believe (Henderson, NC)? Thank you.

    • Steve

      Hi Marcia,

      I just looked up Henderson in the USDA zone finder and it says you’re a 7B, which means Purple Daydream will work great in your zone!


      Let us know if you have any further questions.

    I was very pleased with my order of purple daydream. All the plants were full and thick. I will be ordering more when they come available!

    Beautiful healthy well packaged plants

    I have had really good success with plants purchased from Plantsbymail.com. Quality of plants is good. Service is even better.

  13. Kelly Woods (verified owner)

    The plants arrived very healthy. Shipping by FedEx was disappointing- all 17 of my plants arrived out of their dirt due to being shipped and delivered sideways. Thankfully Plants by Mail had each plant in a plastic bag, I’m hopeful that the roots will survive their planting. The quality of the plants is outstanding, so I might use this store again; however, I did have to email several times to request my plants after I’d received confirmation that my order was complete (before they were even shipped) and asking for a review.

    I received these plants and am very satisfied with them. The plants are beautiful with well developed roots and beautiful foliage. Looking forward to gorgeous shrubs…. Took a phone call to get them shipped in a timely manner.

    Can I plant this in Chicago?purple Daydream?

  16. Satish (verified owner)

    I have purchased these exact plants from 3 nurseries in the Dallas area. None of them survived past 2 weeks. Since I really like the plant, I decided to give the Purple Daydream from PBM a shot. Been 4 plus weeks now, the plants seem to be thriving. Another winner from PBM. Thank you.

  17. Tricia Miller Stein (verified owner)

    Great service, plants arrived in beautiful condition. I will order again from them.

  18. Lisa (verified owner)

    PBM notifified me that this shrub was back in stock and I ordered right away! The shrubs arrived a few days later in good shape, well packaged. I popped them in the pre-prepared bed about 3 weeks ago, and they’ve hardly skipped a beat with proper watering in our early heat wave in north Texas.

  19. Christine (verified owner)

    The plants arrived in excellent condition and were packed extremely well and moist. I have never ordered bushes online but Home Depot did not have these in stock so I was excited to find Plantsbymail website and am very pleased with the quality.

  20. Paula Streit (verified owner)

    Purchased 8 of these plants in the 2-gal size and they all arrived healthy and beautiful!

  21. Gail Ewing (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in a timely manner in excellent condition and are happily growing in the garden! Thanks for excellency!

  22. Mike M (verified owner)

    All of our shrubs came in great condition and in superior packaging to protect them. The shrubs from Plants by Mail
    are superior to the ones in local nurseries and at Lowes.

  23. Kathleen Thore (verified owner)

    Extremely pleased with packaging and quality of the plant. Highly recommend Plants by mail.

  24. James Robbins (verified owner)

    Love these plant. They are healthy right out the box.

  25. James Robbins (verified owner)

    Great colors. Packaged nicely

  26. Pam (verified owner)

    These plants are beautiful. I ordered 4 altogether. 2 in the 2 gallon size and 2 in the 2.5 QT size. The 2 gallon arrived healthy and they’re beautiful, flowering already. The 2.5 QT size were very small and are taking longer to establish with some browning. Can’t wait for them to grow up!
