Purple Diamond Loropetalum (Loropetalum chinense 'Shang-hi')
Combining colorful flowers and foliage with controlled growth, Purple Diamond is a gem. Unlike some other loropetalums that can swallow your house, this one grows 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Showy pink flowers appear in spring and sometimes summer. Deep, rich purple foliage holds its color all season.
