Raindrops on Loropetalum Leaves
We walk by our Loropetalum almost everyday and it seldom gets noticed. Purple leaves just blend in.
It's a wonderful shrub for the Texas Gulf Coast. It even blooms with small, lavender tassles in the cooler months. It is more drought tolerant than you would think and it can take a hard freeze and come back quickly. It's a native of China and was discovered in Hunan Province. It's in the Witch Hazel family.

Have a Nice Monday, Ya'll.
