Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum 'Fire Dance'

FIredance Fringe Flower

Semi-evergreen Shrub

Sought after for its contribution of deep burgundy foliage that looks good for months on end. This semi-evergreen shrub is electrified in early spring when it's covered with fringy, deep magenta pink blooms. Good in a mixed border; pair it with yellow foliage to jazz it up or blue foliage to cool it down.
