This rapid growing, evergreen shrub reaches 10 to 15 feet tall and about as wide - more upright when young - spreading out with age. Narrow bronzy-green 4 inch long leaves turn purple with cooler weather. Tolerates some shade but color is better if grown in full sun. Tiny green flowers in clusters mid-summer followed by brown maple-like seed capsules in late summer.
Provide a well-draining soil, drought tolerant once established but looks best with occasional deep water. Ideal for use as a specimen or as an informal hedge or screen. Prune for structure in fall and winter. Tolerates shearing during the growing season. Can be grown in larger containers.
