A Fantastic Foliage ™ Selection. This unusual variety combines striking color contrast with an interesting plant architecture and great heat tolerance. Purple Flash grows with a layered, scaffolding habit to create an exotic look. Leaves are almost black with flashes of bright purple, and topped with small, round glossy black fruit. The 13 to 15" compact, mounded plants are uniform in size and achieve a hearty spread of 19-21", making it excellent for both the landscape and mixed containers. NOTE: The fruit is hot and not recommended for eating.
