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.

    My first time ordering plants by mail. The quality of the plants received were above my expectations. The packaging was very clever with the undamaged plants seeming quite comfortable in their packaging. Based upon my one time experience, I would highly recommend this business as I can’t imagine having a better plants by mail experience. I can’t recall writing a review for a merchant in the past but this was truly an outstanding encounter and I would recommend them without reservation.

    I am very pleased that my 12 ‘Purple Daydream Dwarf Loropetalum’ plants arrived most carefully packaged. Very gorgeous and healthy looking plants! Already producing beautiful and lovely dark pink string clusters of flowers! Looking forward to watching these plants grow and provide me with a striking Looking hedge!

    This was my first purchase from Plants by Mail. I bought four of the loropetalums. Despite taking some time to deliver to the west coast, the plants arrived in sturdy boxes with moist soil. These plants have fragile branches and some smaller ones did break in the shipping. This wasn’t a ding against the company, but just the reality of shipping such a plant. Overall, I’m happy with the selection, one that I could not source locally, and I plan on buying from them again.

    This was my first purchase from Plants by Mail. I am very very satisfied with my order and will definitely be ordering again! Plants we’re packaged very nice and all were healthy! I planted them the day that they came in and so far so good!!!

    Plants arrived healthy and full. Packaging was great.
    I am in zone 7 so I hope and pray they will get through our winters in good health.
    Very happy customer!

    First purchase from Plants by Mail and I can say that I’m very satisfied. The delivery took a little longer than expected and the plants were a little disturbed in the packaging but not too bad. More importantly, there was no damage to the plants. I liked the way each individual pot was packaged. The soil was not able to leak out of the packaging and each pot was filled with more than enough soil. All of the plants were very healthy. I planted them almost a week ago and they are thriving so far and are very beautiful. I would definitely order again from this company.

    My second order of these beauties and the shipment did not disappoint. The beautiful purple and pink hues of the foliage and followers are simple yet dramatic in our landscape.

    Pictures do not do these Purple Daydream® Dwarf Loropetalum justice. They are magnificent. I just can’t wait to see them flourish and bloom in our new landscape project. Thank you PBM!

    Plant came in excellent condition and was very well packed.

  14. Andrew McCormick (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in awful condition. Some were upside down while others were right side up within the same box. I purchased the (7) of the 3 gallon variety that could easily pass for a 1.5/2 gallon plant. Only 1 out of the 7 I ordered are comparable to what you would find at a local nursery. Pretty disappointed with the purchase and would not recommend.

  15. Margaret Stephenson (verified owner)

    Most reviewers had praises for the way their plants were shipped. I unfortunately had a different experience. My six little plants were mailed in a huge box and came loose from their cardboard sleeves during shipment. They therefore rolled around in the big box coming out of their pots and losing up to half of the soil they were planted in. One of them had a major branch broken off. Very disappointed after reading such glowing reviews!

    First time to order from Plantsbymail. But it won’t be the last! I ordered 12 of the plants; they arrived in perfect condition. The service,
    packaging and plants were perfect.

  17. Dani Castaneda (verified owner)

    My garden experienced the ice storm in Texas last February, and pretty much destroyed the newly planted loropetalums. The local nurseries inventory were very low. So I ordered a single Purple Daydream Loropetalum in April. It arrived quickly and beautifully. I was so pleased, I ordered 5 more in early September and am so grateful for the beautiful conditions that the plants arrive in. Thank you PbM for executing such thoughtful packaging.

    Best plants I have ever bought. So hardy. They came in 2 days. I had already bought some locally, but they did not have enough. PbM plants are far superior.

    These plants arrived quickly. They were in a custom box to prevent breakage and were wrapped to hold moisture. I needed more than they had in stock so I also ordered from another online place. In comparison, Plants by Mail’s plants were twice the size and much healthier. I will definitely order from PbM again.
