A compact evergreen shrub with deep purple foliage, 'Plum Gorgeous' is known for having the darkest colour among Loropetalum varieties. It boasts a showy display of vivid hot pink, tasselled flowers during both spring and autumn. This variety maintains a naturally dense, domed habit, making it ideal for adding year-round colour and structure to gardens.


Prefers a full sun to partial shade poisition, with more intense sunlight enhancing the colouration of its foliage. It thrives in well-draining, acidic soil and benefits from regular watering, especially during the establishment period. This easy-to-grow, hardy shrub requires minimal maintenance once established and tolerates mild frost. Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring to encourage healthy growth and flowering.

Landscape Uses

Perfect as a feature plant in landscapes, offering structure and year-round colour. It's ideal for informal low hedging or mass planting in larger areas. It also works wonderfully in containers on balconies and in courtyards. The deep purple foliage contrasts beautifully with the golden reds and fine foliage of Nandina 'Moonbay'.
