Deer tolerant and deer resistant plants
The Southern Living® Plant Collection offers three deer-proof Loropetalums.
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® Dwarf 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® Semi-dwarf Loropetalum grows 4-6 feet tall vand 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 4-6 feet tall.
All of these Loropetalums are bred to be compact; unlike traditional varieties.
