How fast will they grow?

Asked by Bear April 7, 2018

Answers

I don't know, since I just planted mine. But they are certainly healthy, so should grow as well as the label states.

To what size does this plant grow?

Answers

The mature size is approximately 48 x 48 inches.

Does this come in a dwarf size that would stay small

Answer

Yes...it's called a Purple Pixie Loropetalum. Grows 1-2 ft tall and spreads up to 4 feet. Not sure if Home Depot sells this type.

Is this shrub Deer Resistant? You have not given any information on Deer's resistance.

Do not buy
Do not purchase! I am very disappointed. I ordered delivery of the Ruby Loropetalum, Evergreen Shrub 2.5 Qt. The plants are very small. It would take more than five years to grow to a very small bush. This was literally a couple of sticks. When they arrived they had white spots on the leaves and were dead in three weeks.
