Hi, Nicolay,
Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum has a boderling H3 hardiness rating, or hardy to zone 7. This means it will most likely withstand temps down to -5C, maybe even down to -15C but will probably suffer dieback at that temp. I think where you are is just out of the range of this plant's cold tolerance.
