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.

    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.

    Great products for the price and getting them delivered is awesome.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Jan Smith (verified owner)

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. Beverly Jenkins (verified owner)

    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.

    Very nice shrub,well packed

  13. Lisa Reese (verified owner)

    I identified this plant as the perfect color and size, but none of my local suppliers could get it for me so I was happy to find it available here. I ordered six and they all arrived very full and healthy for a 2 gallon size - more so than I expected from online purchases from other companies. My only complaint is that I had received an email saying I would be told when the plants shipped so that I could track them, but they arrived without warning and I was not able to schedule planting them right away.

  14. Terry lynn Sewell (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in great condition and thriving beautifully. Very pleased.

  15. Elaine Rukavina (verified owner)

    I have to say I was skeptical about ordering plants on line, but I am very pleased to say they were spectacular. I will now order all my plants on line. Thank you.

  16. Cathy (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in great condition. Very please with my purchase.

  17. christine (verified owner)

    These plants are beautiful - dark purple leaves with festive, feathery, bright pink blooms. They are healthy, came packaged well, and are a fantastic contrast to my sunshine ligustrum!

  18. brandicroft (verified owner)

    Got my Loropetalum today and they are AMAZING !!!! So Healthy and pretty .. I hope they stay as beautiful ! Will for SURE order from here again !!

  19. Judy (verified owner)

    First time buyer, zone 7b. I Ordered three of these shrubs, two were fine. The third one arrived in poor, dry condition. I planted all and fertilized them with Plant Tone and they had water and sun. Checked it today and it is almost dead. Will give this company one more try because they get high ratings from my YouTube sites.

  20. Dani (verified owner)

    The packaging of the Plants by mail is the best I've ever seen. The plants arrive in beautiful condition. I've ordered, Rocket Orange Barberry, Everillo Carex, and Purple Daydream Loropetalum, all were impeccably wrapped.

  21. Amy Puckett (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 Purple Daydream Loropetalums which arrived this week in beautiful condition. We have planted them and look forward to seeing them grow.

  22. Krissa Arend (verified owner)

    Plants are very healthy, and securely packaged. I am very pleased!

  23. leisa_johnson

    My Purple Daydream Loropetalums both arrived in great condition. I was also impressed with the packaging.

    The staff at Plants by Mail were also very accommodating & helpful, and I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

  24. Travis (verified owner)

    Plants showed up in great condition. No problems! They are starting to show new growth as we speak.

  25. Linda Masilek (verified owner)

    Such a beautiful plant; exactly what I expected ! Shipping was so fast. Thank you.

  26. fulmerwillis (verified owner)

    The deep, rich, dark purple color looks amazing when paired with gold, yellow and light green plants. This little prize is attractive and easy to take care of. The ideal plant to add contrast in a too green garden. An absolutely marvelous addition to my front yard garden space.

  27. 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!

  28. James Robbins (verified owner)

    Great colors. Packaged nicely

  29. James Robbins (verified owner)

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

  30. Kathleen Thore (verified owner)

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

  31. 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.

  32. Gail Ewing (verified owner)

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

  33. Paula Streit (verified owner)

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

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. Tricia Miller Stein (verified owner)

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

  37. 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.

  38. Wrenne Jakubiak

    Can I plant this in Chicago?purple Daydream?

  39. Nancy Wentz (verified owner)

    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.

  40. 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.

  41. Satish (verified owner)

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

    Beautiful healthy well packaged plants

  43. mrjlw5378 (verified owner)

    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!

  44. Marcia Myers

    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.

  45. March (verified owner)

    Very happy with the two plants I received and the packaging used. Will purchased again with Plants by Mail.

  46. Tonia (verified owner)

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

    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.

  48. rtorre02 (verified owner)

    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!

  49. ksthore (verified owner)

    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.

  50. ksthore (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the packaging of the plants. They arrived in great condition.

    these bushes arrived as though I'd just purchased them from a nursery...very pleased

  52. Anonymous

    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.
