I got this from Lazy S's Farm online. It arrived approx. 6" tall 1 year ago and has already grown to just over 4' tall and about 3' wide. Really. A fast grower that pushes out new burgundy/purple leaves in early spring through late November in my zone 7b area. The leaves turn green when they mature. The plant's main attraction is the foliage. It started blooming in May and lasted about a month (if my memory is correct). It receives blazing afternoon sun and a lot of humidity in summer and has done very well. I've got it sitting in approx 7.0 pH/neutral amended soil. I've had no problems with this shrub. I do recommend pruning it when it's very young to direct the growth.
