Now that I've grown this plant for at least seven years I have seen it at its best and at its worst. Despite what many people initially thought about Daruma's stature it is now clear that it will grow just as large as most other Loropetalums. Mine are now at least six feet tall. The good news is it blooms like crazy and can be quite a sight to behold. The bad news is you have to fertilize it consistantly or the foliage will not hold its purple hue.
Overall it's not so bad or I would have ripped it out of my landscape a long time ago.

I have not grown this plant. I have grown other types. This is a dwarf plant that is most compact when grown in full sun. It seldom grows over 4 feet tall and wide. It prefers moist, acidic well-drained soil. If the soil is alkaline, the leaves do not attain its deep plum color for which it is known and grown.
