My Loropetalum plus a tool for trimming the tips of palm leaflets ( and the tips of Yuccas ) :

I always had trouble trimming up my plants like dead at the tips of palm leaflets until I tried these scissors . They cut palm leaflets with ease so you don't have hold the leaflet , but simply cut off the dead and the leaflet doesn't slip away like when using regular scissors . Those serrations hold the leaf in place when cutting and it's much easier and quicker to trim the dead off . Oh , and it cuts the tip of potentially dangerous Yucca leaf tips with ease as well . Many of my Yuccas are in a very dangerous position if a child were to run around and into them , especially eye damage so I have cut some of the leaf tips off and need to do more . I hope someone finds them useful .
My Loropetalum is in bloom again after it bloomed this spring . Is this normal ?
Thanks for looking ,
