Reddish Purple Foliage Attracts Birds

The Purpleleaf Sandcherry is a deciduous ornamental shrub. Its outstanding color would make it a great choice as a focal point in your yard or by an entranceway. Several would also do well as a hedge.

“Ornamental” is certainly the perfect word for the Purpleleaf Sandcherry. Right from the first foliage that forms in the spring, the three inch leaves are a reddish-purple, and they’ll maintain that strong color in your yard throughout the summer months.

Small white flowers with a strong pink influence will emerge in the spring, softening the bright effect of the early foliage. As fall grows closer you’ll see the leaves transition to a red-bronze hue before they fall.

In late summer/early fall, small black cherries will form. You will likely miss it but the birds certainly won’t. They’ll be happy for the helping hand you’ve given them as the summer season begins to draw to a close.

The Purpleleaf Sandcherry is a dense-growing shrub that reaches eight feet in height with an equal spread. It has an upright growth habit that becomes spreading with age.

It tends to establish itself very quickly, so you won’t have to wait long to witness its outstanding benefits. It’s also hardy, long-lived and beneficial to wildlife.

If you’re looking for a small shrub with enormous ornamental appeal, the Purpleleaf Sandcherry is the perfect choice.
