Garnet Fire™ Loropetalum. 'Garnet Fire' is a selection from our breeding work here at Nurseries Caroliniana. It has some of the best dark burgundy foliage in the trade and the color holds throughout the year. The flower color borders on being a true red. It is a medium to large grower with a spread equal to its height. We have to reconcile ourselves that plants do not stop growing. There are some old green leaf forms on an estate in Aiken, SC just a few miles away, that are 35' tall with several 20" diameter trunks. This selection can be easily maintained at 4-8' and of course the best color is had when planted in full sun.
