About Purple Diamond® Compact Loropetalum

The Purple Diamond Loropetalum from the Southern Living Plant Collection is a true landscaping treasure, exemplifying magnificent royal purple foliage and spectacular purple-pink ribbon blossoms that bloom from spring until summer. Purple Diamond’s leaves will hold their color all year long which provides new and exciting ways to create contrast in landscapes.

Unlike most other Loropetalums, Purple Diamond has a controlled growth habit of 4-5 ft high and wide which makes maintenance a thing of the past. Plant the Purple Diamond in full sun to part shade in acidic rich soil to keep it healthy and thriving.

How to Space Your Purple Diamond Loropetalum 

Space Your Purple Diamond Loropetalum 3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Plant them 6+ feet apart to leave space between shrubs.

    These are beautiful and it’s hard to believe the size of the plant that comes out of the box. So well packed and in great condition! I will definitely order again!

    I was very impressed with my plants that I received today. Looked nice and healthy, better than some I’ve purchased at local nurseries. Thanks

    Healthy plant and great instructions.

    Excellent shrub with beautiful purple foliage that contrasts well with Sushine Ligustrum. I planted these near my pergola so I can enjoy them while relaxing. Thank you PlantsbyMail!

    My Purple Diamond Loropetalums came in great shape. I had ordered one short of what I needed and plants by mail added the extra loropetalum to the first order.

    Plants arrived quickly. Two were fine but one (same species) was scrawny and did not have a healthy root ball. I should have complained but with all we are dealing with now, it was not my highest priority.

      Hey Daniel, send us a photo of the beat up plant at [email protected]. We’ll review and send you a new plant or refund you for the problem plant.

    I love all my plants. When I received my plants a couple were damaged. You were so gracious to replace he damaged ones.Thank you so much.

    We ordered 4. Love the color and size. Unfortunately two were extremely dry upon arrival and we were not able to revive them. PBM ordered replacements for them and the new ones came in looking gorgeous. We will definitely be buying from them again. Thanks for the excellent customer service.

    I love my new plants! They arrived healthy and in good shape. I planted them right away (May 2020) and these plants are thriving in this springtime weather. I will be ordering more plants from plant by mail again!

    I have ordered twice from Plants by Mail and my plants have come quickly, well packaged, and very healthy. I will always order from them as this has not been my experience with other mail order plant websites.

  13. Nicole (verified owner)

    I couldn’t find these plants anywhere locally so I went ahead and ordered online despite being worried about whether I’d get decent plants. They arrived very quickly, well packaged and despite being a bit dry (of course) they were in great shape! I planted them in early autumn, so we’ll see how they hold up and perform next year but so far I’m very happy! Hoping they grow up healthy and strong. It’s such a lovely color for landscaping and different than the usual!
