JAZZ HANDS® Pink Chinese Fringe-flower

Zone: 7b, 8, 9 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 3-5' Width/Spread: 3-5'

Lots of color packed into a pretty little habit. Jazz Hands® Pink Loropetalum’s dark purple foliage is laid out on horizontal branches, giving its mounded habit a rather architectural feeling. New growth is a warm burgundy, which highlights the tips of the dark mass nicely. This two toned look gets an upgrade in the springtime when bright fuchsia flowers burst from the tips of each branch like confetti. This small to midsize shrub looks at home in the middle of the border, as a tall edging, and especially in containers where its habit slightly cascades outward.
