Pink roots!

I planted a little job for a client today. One of the plants is Loropetalum. It has burgundy leaves. Anybody who knows me knows I love plants that are something other than green. When I lifted it out of the pot I saw that it has PINK ROOTS! How pretty! What a plant geek I am!


  1. You're not a geek. I think that's fascinating! Who'd a thunk?

  2. Now you will be the object of searches for 'Laura Pedlum' as I am.

    Loropetalum is one of my fav plants. Some of mine grew up and are now 12 foot trees. I'll have to dig and see, the one with white blooms and green leaves may not have pink roots.
