Loropetalum 'Black Pearl' 2L
Chinese Witch Hazel...Spectacular Firework-Like Flowers, Striking All Year Round Foliage, Easy To Grow And Winter Hardy!
A plant for all seasons and all gardens, the Chinese Witch Hazel really is one of the most spectacular plants you can own! Quite a rarity in UK gardens, it's unlikely that your neighbours will have one, so you can be one of the first to grow it! Incredibly exotic looking this highly prized beauty is actually very hardy and easy to grow.
Its glorious, rich burgundy, oval shaped leaves contrast superbly against any green foliage and act as a dramatic backdrop to its spectacular vibrant pink flowers. Often likened to sea coral, the highly unusual ribbon-shaped petals explode from the centre just like a firework and completely smother the plant throughout late spring and early summer just when you need interest in your garden.
As spectacular in a pot on your patio as in any border, Chinese Witch Hazel requires nothing more than an occasional trim to keep it in perfect shape.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to plant out. Ultimate height approx. 140cm (4ft). Best grown in a sheltered area where it can be covered if hard frost is forecast. Plant Black Pearl in partial shade in a well-drained soil.
