Loropetalum chinense Burgundy - Witch Hazel
Loropetalum chinense Burgundy is distinct from the other cultivars in that the new foliage comes out bronze-red and it has magenta flowers. As it ages the foliage turns green. This shrub will slowly grow to 8 feet or more tall and wide. Witch Hazel will grow in sun or shade and a variety of soils. Loropetalum chinense prefers to be on the dry side, which makes this an ideal plant for the shade garden under oaks. It seems like Loropetalum chinense Burgundy always has some magenta blossoms, though there are fewer in the winter. The Witch Hazel is tolerant of temperatures into the low teens. Loropetalum chinense drops most or all of its leaves if the temperatures drop that low. This plant is about the same as Loropetalum Sizzling Pink.
