One of the hardiest purple-leafed plants, this erect, deciduous shrub has foliage that is intensely reddish-purple, which lasts until late fall. Single, pinkish, fragrant blooms are produced in spring after the leaves develop, giving contrast to the dark foliage. Small black inedible fruits follow the flowers. Plant in full sun in any well drained, average soil. Prune annually to shape and to maintain a nice, neat appearance.

  • Beautiful accent plant with deep reddish purple leaves all summer
  • Dramatic foliage color
  • Year-round interest with tiny spring flowers, summer foliage color, and black inedible fruits in fall
  • Showy spring flowers
  • 2 gal. ships in pot unless state or federal regulations require otherwise
  • We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Arizona, California, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina, Vermont or Washington
  • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Utah
  • When shipped as a bare root plant, the Shake&Shipsystem will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment
  • Performs best in plant growing zones 4 to 7, when grown in other Zones, special care requirements will be required
  • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 6 ft. away from other plants or structures
  • May ship in a dormant state, with bare branches and no leaves, especially in early spring when plant has been pruned back to promote lateral branching
