I bought these as foundation plants and I am loving them, started off with 6 in June (the did need extra attention to get established) but they are beautiful. I went to buy 4 more yesterday.

LOVE this Loropetalum! out of the 6 varieties I planted last fall- all 10 did GREAT while the other varieties were beat up or died in our colder than normal zone 7 winter of 2018 in NC. When it turns in late summer the whole plant looks like flowers from a distance - so wonderful and unexpected!margot debarmore, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
I bought this because of the beautiful variegated foliage. In my second year with this plant and the foliage is no longer variegated. It is not even a pretty purple. I will not repurchase and I would not recommend.Mariann Reid, 1 year ago
I bought two of these two years ago. The plants leaves die during the winter. In the spring, one plant still more than half brown leaves and some new growth. They other plant died. I have never seen any fringe. At $40 per plant, these were a waste of money.Laurie, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
I bought five plants in total in the fall of 2017. I was so excited because the plants were beautiful, unique. Three were planted on a berm, the other two on an east facing side of the house . The berm plants are alive but barely (to compare there are 6 Crimson Fire lorelpetalums doing well on that same berm). Lots of die back over the winter. The two on the side of the house did better. However, none of the new growth this spring is variegated. Not one leaf. Zip. Nada. It looks just like my Crimson Fire lorelpetalums. I would not buy this again.Jeanne, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
Started out great but after two months color was fading followed by branch dieback on the first two plants, followed the same schedule on two additional plants which were added a month after the originals. Planted in 4 locations in the garden, soil test results in desired range.Gene, North Carolina, United States, 2 years ago
