Loropetalum chinense 'Ruby Runner'

A beautiful ruby-red colour, running, all year round!

With its creeping habit, particularly unusual for the Loropetalum genus, and a handsome, evergreen foliage of ruby and purple red, 'Ruby Runner' is a highly attractive variety all year round, suitable for a number of new uses in the garden. 10 to 15 cm high, Ruby Runner will be most effective at the front of a bed or as ground cover. It is also suitable for mixed pots or hanging baskets. From the end of February to April an abundance of dark pink flowers appear, and, if it is not pruned, Ruby Runner will flower again in summer. The flower is unusual, similar to the Hamamelis, with its petals in the shape of fine strips.

Resistant to heat and drought, it favours fertile, well-drained soils and needs little attention. This variety was awarded the silver medal at GrootGroenPlus in 2016.
