Deer tolerant

Loropetalums are a wonderful evergreen shrub appropriate for most yards - especially yards with frequent visitors such as deer. The Southern Living® Plant Collection offers three Loropetalums that typically are deer-proof.

Purple Pixie® Weeping Loropetalum grows 1-2 feet high and 4-5 feet wide, and looks great as a groundcover, and in containers and hanging baskets. Purple Diamond® Compact Loropetalum grows 4-5 feet tall and wide. Both of these varieties retain their rich purple hue all year long and offer hot pink blooms in the spring!

Our new green Loropetalum, Emerald Snow™ offers leathery, shiny green foliage that offers a great contrast to the vivid purple Loropetalums in the collection. It blooms delicate white fringe flowers in spring and grows to a low-maintenance 4-5 feet.

All of these Loropetalums are bred to be compact; unlike traditional varieties.

There are a variety of other plants showcased in the Southern Living® Plant Collection that are also deterrent to deer.

These include:
