Loropetalum chinense 'Purple Pixie'
A dwarf, ground cover shrub with spreading, weeping branches. The small leaves are rich purple in colour and the showy, tassel-like, pink flowers appear in Spring. It likes full sun to part shade, is tolerant of frost and humidity, and moderately tolerates drought. Prefers a well-drained moist soil and will grow in clay, loam or sandy soils. Water to establish and keep the soil moist in dry conditions. A great colour contrast in garden beds, hanging baskets, and containers. Prune after flowering to keep tidy every 2-3 years, or more often if desired. Fertilise in early Spring.
