As if the purple foliage wasn’t enough, come spring, the Purple Daydream surprises with pink ribbon-like flowers!
The Purple Daydream is a dwarf variety of Loropetalum, conveniently reaching a compact size of 2-3′ in height and 3-4′ in width, making upkeep a breeze.
The Purple Daydream Loropetalum is a versatile low maintenance shrub that will not require much from you to survive. While it thrives best in full sunlight, it can also adapt to partial shade. This adaptability ensures that it finds a home in various parts of your garden, be it a sunny patch or under the light shade of taller plants.
While the Purple Daydream does prefer well-drained soil it is tolerant of a variety of soil conditions. Be sure to avoid areas where water may stand to avoid waterlogged roots.
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.
