Top Tips

  • The flowering branches make great and unusual indoor vase displays.

Care Information

  • Although hardy to -10C, young leaves can be damaged by frost, although they will grow back. Provide protection if frost threatens to revent damage.
  • Grow in a sheltered area in sun or light dappled shade. South to south-west facing is ideal.
  • Loropetalum prefers a slightly acidic, humus-rich soil that retains moisture so add ericaceous compost to the planting hole or grow in a container.
  • Keep well-watered.
  • Like clematis, Chinese witch hazel likes to have cool roots, so grow it were the roots are likely to be shaded, such as among perennials or cover the area with a thick mulch of gravel.
  • In the colder parts of the country (i.e where temperatures are likely to drop below -10C), Loropetalum should be treated as tender and kept in a large terracotta container that can be brought in for the winter.
