SKU
41598
A dwarf form of the beloved "Royal Purple' cultivar, perfectly proportioned for smaller gardens. Forms a small, rounded, deciduous shrub with all of the color and interest of its larger cousin. Frothy plumes of pink flowers rise above the wine red foliage in the summer. Oval leaves turn shades of bright orange, coral, and red in the fall. A big impact in sunny borders with very low maintenance.
