Dark velvety purple rounded leaves. Ultimately making a large bushy shrub or sometimes a small tree, but often restrained by pruning to encourage good bold foliage. Unpruned plants produce cloud-like plumes of tiny brownish pink flowers. Good autumn colour.

Any reasonable, well drained soil. Best foliage colour in full sun. Thrives well in areas with warm, dry summers.
