Q:What is the structural difference between the 2.25 gal and 3 gal plants? Does the 2/25 gal plant have a strong leader (stem), and the 3 gal more of a shrub? I'm looking to tree form the plant. Thank you

        Beautiful evergreen shrub for warm climates (Zones 7-10). I purchased this bush to fill a tough spot in my garden; an area with heavy mid and late day sun. I did not need a thriller there but this evergreen does have some small flowers and fits the area and space well. I expect it to flower more in upcoming summers based off the pictures. The foliage has great interest too, the mature leaves are green but new growth is a pink. The bush arrived in great condition and was watered well. There were a few flowers on it when it arrived. I recommend opening the box from the bottom and pulling the box up so you dont damage the shrub. Also, open the box in the grass as some dirt will come out. I live in Zone 7a and the shrub loves the sun and heat.

        Much smaller than anticipated. Ordered 2 and both looked to be a smaller plant placed in a larger container. The dirt for the original was harder, dryer and lighter while the newer dirt was darker and fresh. I should have returned them, but I was pressed for time and simply planted them. More hesitate about buying plants online now.

        Very small plant in a bery large pot.
        Home Depot. Stop allowing your plant vendors to sell tiny plants inside of 2.25 gallon containers and say that the plant is large. My Midnight Carolina Loropetalum was sold to me and it appears to others as well much much smaller than advertised. That is fraudulent and misleading. The plant is healthy but very small. Do better national Plant Network. Do better. If mediocre is what you are striving for, you knocked it out of the park.🙄
