Emerald Snow Loropetalum requires little or no pruning. However, light pruning may be necessary to maintain a desired shape, or to remove stray or broken branches and spent blooms. Light pruning should be done just after the shrub has finished blooming in spring. Hard pruning, to reduce the size of the shrub, should be performed in late winter; before new foliage has emerged. Pruning with sharp hand pruners is recommended. Pruning with electric or gas-powered hedge trimmers can cause unsightly scarring of leaves.

Plant Emerald Snow Loropetalum in sites that provide very well-drained soil and full sun to half a days shade. I've had this plant growing in my landscape for several years in both full sun and part shade and all are doing well. Emerald Snow can be useful in the landscape as a foundation plant, on slopes, in small or large groups, or as a natural or formal hedge.

To plant, dig a hole no deeper than the root ball and two to three times the width of the root ball and fill it with water. If the hole drains within a few hours, you have good drainage. If the water is still standing 12 hours later, improve the drainage in your bed, perhaps by establishing a raised bed. Turn and break up the soil removed from the planting hole. If the native soil is dense, compacted or heavy clay mix in a good organic compost or soil amendment at a 50/50 ratio with the soil removed from the hole. Remove your plant from its container and carefully but firmly loosen the root ball. Set the plant into the hole you've prepared, making sure the top of the root ball is slightly above the soil level. Pull your backfill soil mixture around the root ball in the hole, tamping as you go to remove air pockets. Then water thoroughly and cover with a one to two-inch layer of mulch.

I've yet to see any problems with insects, pests, or disease. Consistently wet soil can be a killer.
