Odd autumn effects: Loropetalum chinense 'Zhuzhou Fuchsia' and 'Hindwarf'

Hey, we like 'em for their outrageously pink flowers and we like 'em for their maroon/red/purple leaves. We like the fact that they flower a bit in the fall a bit in the winter and still nicely in the spring. This multicolor fall foliage though, just takes it to another level. I don't know if every fall will result in these curious color mixes, but judging from the fact that various individuals in various places had the same combinations, I think we can assume the Zhuzhou will stay with the orange color and Hindwarf with the red.
