Evergreen, Shrubs, Flowers

LOROPETALUM

Native to China and Japan. Grows to 6–10 ft. high and wide. Neat, compact habit, with tiers of arching or drooping branches. Roundish, light green, soft-textured leaves 1–2 in. long; throughout the year, the occasional leaf turns yellow or red, providing a nice touch of color. White to greenish flowers, each with four narrow, twisted, inch-long petals, appear in clusters of four to eight at branch tips. Flowering is heaviest in spring, but some bloom is likely at any time.
