About Ruby Loropetalum

The Ruby Loropetalum is a compact evergreen shrub that provided unique landscape color all year round. New growth on this bush will be red-purple then will mature to purple-green. Ruby will produce ribbon-like pink blooms from spring into early fall. Once established the Ruby Loropetalum is drought tolerant and low maintenance requiring little pruning to keep a uniform shape.

Spacing Your Ruby Loropetalum

For a seamless planting, space your Ruby Loropetalum 3 feet apart from plant center to plant center. For space between plantings, plant them 6+ feet apart.

    I was quite nervous about ordering plants online ! But not any more , These arrived in very ,very good condition & all 7 plants are thriving! & doing very well , & on another note as I was planting these Loropetelums ( Ruby ) The honey bees started to hit them at least the ones that where flowering . I’m very happy with my purchase & would recommend you to anyone! & I will look forward to doing business with you in the future.

    I received my 4 Ruby Loropetalums and they are all in bad condition. These are supposed to be evergreen but all 4 look like they are deciduous with very few leaves. They all have poor quality of leaves many of them very browned out. Two of the 4 had broken branches (large branches).

      Thank you Mr Joe, Customer Service has reached out to you through private email. When Loropetalums winter they will not look as vibrant as they do in Spring and Summer. They will grow more sparse, drop some limbs, and turn a slighter darker shade. Your plants are in excellent condition based on your pictures. Plants have adaptations to life throughout the seasons just like people do. I hope you come to know and enjoy your loropetalums as we do.

    Our 18 Ruby Loropetalum arrived in pretty good shape. Our packaging was significant damaged which led to unnecessary damage to the plants. A few were hurt to the point that I’m still worried about them 1 month after planting. The plants that weren’t damaged were healthy and are doing well.

  6. Todd Gerald (verified owner)

    I purchased 14 of these. Mostly in great shape, only a couple with damaged growth. No problem, removed broken sprigs and plants are doing well.

    after unpacking, the plants looked like I picked them up at the nursery. Only had them 1 month.

  8. Sherry (verified owner)

    The plant was in great condition when I received. Packaging excellent. Great service

  9. Hugh Mackie (verified owner)

    I ordered two of these. The plants were well packed and arrived in South Carolina reasonably fresh. The root balls filled the pots but the plants weren’t pot bound. I’ve planted them and they’ve perked up nicely. So far so good!
