Chinese Fringe Plant 'Ever Red' - Shrub

Loropetalum chinense 'Ever Red'
Chinese Fringe Plant 'Ever Red'

Dark-red Chinese fringe flower

The Loropetalum chinense is also called the Chinese fringe flower. The ‘Ever Red’ fully lives up to its name. It’s not just “a bit” red either. This small decorative shrub has deep-red leaves and in the early spring, it reveals full, red buds that blossom into flowers during summer. It’s the perfect shrub to add a sharp pop of colour to your garden.

Loropetalums never grow larger than 75 centimetres. They go great anywhere: in gardens, pots, and planters. This also keeps them a bit smaller.

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • What do I need?
    • A trowel
    • Garden peat and compost
    • Water

    Water first
    Place the fringe flower in a bucket of lukewarm water first.

    In a pot
    Add garden peat and compost to a large pot and then plant the fringe flower. Place the tree at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Give the fringe flower water right away.

    In the garden
    Plant the fringe flower in the sun or in half shade, but only in soil that drains well. The soil needs to be nutrient-rich, but it is all right if it is a bit dry. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Add garden peat and compost to the hole and then plant the fringe flower. Place the tree at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Give the fringe flower water right away.

    Maintenance
    Regularly water the fringe flower, and when it is blooming, give it some plant food - it really makes a difference. These plants do well in cold weather, but if you have planted it in a pot, it is a good idea to move it somewhere that doesn’t freeze when the temperature drops significantly.

    Pruning
    You do not need to prune a fringe flower, but you can if you like. Cut away branches that are too long after they have bloomed. This allows you to keep the shrub neat and sleek.
