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.

    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.
