Purple Sandcherry is an outstanding shrub!
Delicate cherry like blossoms appear in early spring, accented by rich purple leaves.
The foliage maintains color well into late summer, adding beauty to a landscape when other plants are suffering from the heat of July and August.
In order to get the best leaf color, plant it in a location where it can receive full sun, as shade tends to turn the leaves more of a green/bronze.
It grows 6-8 feet tall and 7-8 feet wide but can be easily trimmed to any height.
