anyone have any experience with this shrub? we have 6 (3 on each side) by our employee entrance. they had booms until the temps dropped to the mid 20's. i have decided that i want some. now, just gotta figure out where to put them! so i am looking for feedback to see what ya'll think.

My Daughter recieved some shrubs for Christmas, but they were identified as Ruby Loripedlum. They grow about 4 feet tall and have small, dark pink flowers. Could they be the same thing? I looked for them on the web and came up with nothing that was spelled like that. I am going to hit Google with your name and see what I come up with. She would like to know how to care for them.

That's one of my wish list shrubs,
they are so pretty!!!
But thanks to MOM, I didn't know
that they came in red too!!!

I can't have one, [Eek!] because of the zones, [tears] but when I win that house in Georgia, I can plant one there,

Did you sign up Jiffy today??

i have discovered that this plant is a cousin of the witch hazel, and that has yellow flowers!

Yep, and I can grow those up here!!
I have peaked at those too,
but the postage stamp that I live on
already has some trees.....
So, as to not block my sun, I can't
have it here, but
someday, maybe back up on the hill
I will get some!!
