Loropetalum chinense 'Black Pearl' is a striking ornamental shrub, renowned for its unique appearance and robust growth. This particular variety is expertly cultivated to feature a clear, straight stem measuring 120cm in height, supporting a lush, spherical crown of foliage and flowers, bringing the total height of the plant to an impressive 180cm.

The 'Black Pearl' is distinguished by its deep purple, almost black foliage, which maintains its vibrant color throughout the year. In spring, it becomes a focal point of beauty with an abundance of small, witch hazel-like flowers. These flowers are a vivid pink, creating a stunning contrast against the dark leaves.

This plant is ideal for adding architectural interest to gardens and landscapes. It thrives in well-drained soil and prefers full sun to partial shade, making it versatile for different garden settings. With its eye-catching colors and elegant form, the Loropetalum chinense 'Black Pearl' on a clear stem is a spectacular addition to any outdoor space.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
