Product Description

Known as the Chinese Witch Hazel, this new selection 'Black Pearl' has the darkest coloured leaves of Loropetalum cultivars, and still retains the classic Spectacular, Firework-Like Flowers. It is an evergreen - or should we make that ever-purple - giving year round foliage interest.

Incredibly exotic looking this highly prized beauty is actually hardy and easy to grow. Its glorious, rich burgundy, oval shaped leaves contrast superbly against any green foliage. Often likened to sea coral, the highly unusual ribbon-shaped petals, explode from the centre just like a firework in early Spring and Autumn, never smothered in flowers, but some are present for many months of the year.

Very slow growing, it has a somewhat lax and spreading habit, making it ideal for containers in cooler, shaded spots - but avoid wet feet, especially in Winter.

Supplied as a 3 year old plant, trimemd 3 times, well branched

Plant Information

Top Tips

Like clematis, Chinese witch hazel likes to have cool roots, so grow it were the roots are likely to be shades, such as among perennials or cover the area with a thick mulch of gravel.

Care Guide

  • Although hardy to -10C, young leaves can be damaged by frost, although they will grow back. Provide protection if frost threatens to revent damage.
  • Grow in a sheltered area in sun or light dappled shade. South to south-west facing is ideal.
  • Loropetalum prefers a slightly acidic, humus-rich soil that retains moisture so add ericaceous compost to the planting hole or grow in a container.
  • Keep well-watered.
  • Like clematis, Chinese witch hazel likes to have cool roots, so grow it were the roots are likely to be shaded, such as among perennials or cover the area with a thick mulch of gravel.
  • In the colder parts of the country (i.e where temperatures are likely to drop below -10C), Loropetalum should be treated as tender and kept in a large terracotta container that can be brought in for the winter.
