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.

    This beautiful plant arrived healthy and in excellent condition. It was recently repotted, however, so the root ball was very loose. I made sure to backfill with lots of rich topsoil and manure and it looks great, even though it has still been very hot. I am going to order more loropetalum, but a different variety. Hopefully it will be of the same outstanding quality!

    Arrived quick and packaged well

    Ordered 3 of these and 3 of the dwarf weeping loropetalum last spring. All seemed healthy on arrival and went straight in the ground. They never seemed to establish throughout the season, and none survived the winter. Has anyone had success in the Washington DC area? Wondering if we’re just too far north, despite the 7a hardiness rating. I really don’t want to waste another couple hundred bucks if the plants won’t survive again.

    Ordered nine of them and they all looked sad. Planted them and two now look like they will make it. Holding out hope that the others will. All the other plants I have ordered in the past look great.

    This is the first year I have ordered plants online. I am very impressed with the size of the plants I received and the very careful packaging.
