Loropetalum – Outdoor Living Tip of the Day

The Outdoor Living Tip of the Day is Loropetalum.  Planting day was yesterday here in Matthews, North Carolina. Our focus was on drainage (a dry creek bed of TN river rock, landscape fabric and a pipe out). However, the shrubs, boulders, and Double Hammered Hardwood mulch are looking amazing. Loropetalum is a variety of shrub. The traditional Ruby Loropetalum is pictured below (one from my casa). Ever Red and Dwarf Purple Diamond are other varieties of Loropetalum. These shrubs offer an alternative color (other than green) for your landscaping project. The Ruby grow fast, can be pruned as a hedge, and are a great screening for stuff (like utilities boxes…). The Dwarf Purple Diamond are fantastic for the front yard landscaping beds.


Your landscaping is the ultimate majestic beauty of your home. With so many seasonal colors and diverse species of shrubs and trees, a state-of-the-art landscape around your home creates a masterpiece to be adored. “When I bring a buyer to a home that features state-of-the-art landscaping and elements like a fire pit and high-end pavers, there’s an immediate assumption that the inside of the house will be as spectacular as the outside,” says, John Duffy of Duffy Real Estate. “The new mantra in home buying is location, location, landscape.” Learn more here.
