Plum Gorgeous has deep plum colour foliage that forms a mound which becomes covered in bright magenta tassled flowers during Spring and again in Autumn. With a compact form to about 1m high and 1.5m wide, and a delightfully graceful habit, it naturally maintains a dense shape as it grows. This habit makes it ideal for hedging as well as a feature plant in a container. Loropetalum Plum Gorgeous is a no fuss solution to many uses in the home garden, and is minimal maintenance once established.
