Beautiful Large Plants - Well packaged and arrived quickly
These 2 gallon purple pixie loripetalums are stunning. Great size and packed well and arrived quickly. I order a lot of plants via mailorder and our carriers here do good job handling the plants - even making sure they are placed in a sheltered location ( shaded /covered porch ). The color is so vivid on these shrubs - a beautiful deep purple to the foliage. I wanted to also comment on several folks mentioning the lack of roots - loropetalum are not deep rooted plants and they are extremely brittle ( similar to witch hazel shrubs ). It is very easy to snap the tops from the roots - to plant these beautiful shrubs you need to water the pot deeply prior to planting to encourage the soil to bind together. Then carefully lace the fingers of one hand under the branches around the trunks open palm against the top of the soil. Flip the pot and plant over and with your other hand carefully lift the pot from the plant keeping the soil / rootball intact. Support the rootball and place into your prepared hole in your garden bed. Plant them high about 1” above the soil line - back fill the hole with the excavated soil and settle the soil in with water. Don’t step on the ground around the plant to compact the dirt. Gentle pressure with your hands and a good soaking will settle the soil sufficently and remove any air pockets. Let it settle in a couple of days and check the soil before watering again. Loropetalum need to dry out between waterings. A good indication is the leaves - if you start to see a red hue to a few of the center leaves - its dry and its time to give it a good long soak again. I’ve ordered from home depot quite often and have successfully planted using the technique above several varieties of Southern Livings Loropetalum ( Purple Pixie, Purple Daydream, and Purple Diamond ). Over a dozen plants in 4 garden beds in both full sun and partial sun - haven’t lost one yet - all are beautiful and thriving. One more tip - they are sensitive to salt - so if you have your spinklers or hose bibs on softened water - you need to turn it off and flush the lines before watering these plants. I think these Pixies are my favorite. Absolutely beautiful - highly recommend.

    I bought a one gallon, very sad looking, plant in mid October at an end-of-season sale. The price was good enough that, if she didn't make it, I would not have invested too much money. I transplanted her from the gallon plastic tub into a square brass planter not much bigger than the gallon pot, and put her in a protected spot on my front porch. If the temperatures weren't too bad (say, if below freezing), I moved her out far enough on the deck that she got rain; otherwise, I watered her. Mostly, she just got rain. I'm in zone 8 and, like everyone, we had a particularly rough winter--full weeks below freezing, with intense wind. We had the fireplace going, along with the heat, full weeks at a time--rare for us here. Between mid-October and early March, she wasn't dormant, but she looked like most evergreens in the cold--like she had her arms wrapped around herself to stay warm! She wintered over beautifully (unlike a couple of established shrubs), and is now bursting with flowers and looking extremely happy! I'm very happy with the hardiness of the plant, and delighted by the beauty of her blossoms--since I'd gotten her in sorry shape, I wasn't sure how good she'd look this spring. Will probably move her into a large ceramic pot so that she has room for her roots to spread out a bit. She's really pretty! Let's see how she likes Zone 8 summers!
