Loropetalum chinense 'Black Pearl' is an exquisite, multi-stem parachute shrub, height of about 120cm. This variety is celebrated for its unique architectural form, creating an eye-catching display in any garden. The 'Black Pearl' distinguishes itself with its rich, deep purple foliage, which maintains its vibrant color throughout the year, providing a striking contrast to the typical greens of a garden.

In spring, the shrub is adorned with abundant, small, fringed flowers, which are a vivid shade of pink. These flowers add a burst of color and are delicately fragrant, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies. The parachute-like structure of the branches gives the plant a graceful, cascading appearance, making it an ideal focal point for both formal and informal garden settings.

This Loropetalum variety is known for its hardiness and low maintenance, thriving in a range of soil types and requiring minimal pruning. It's a perfect choice for adding year-round interest to mixed borders, containers, or as a standalone specimen. The 'Black Pearl' is also tolerant of urban pollution, making it suitable for city gardens. Its compact size and unique form make it a versatile and stunning addition to any landscape.

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).
