Loropetalum

Loropetalum is an evergreen shrub that looks good in just about any Florida landscape. It can grow 6-15 feet tall but it is usually pruned small and kept as a shrub. Overall it has burgundy foliage and produces a dark pink flower, usually in spring, so you will want to do any pruning before that. With its moderate growth rate, it works well as a screening plant, hedge, or border. Loropetalum is basically pest free but occasional invaders may need to be treated, along with regular fertilization. It prefers full sun for best blooming results, but it will also grow in partial shade and likes slightly acidic well drained soils.
