“When I’m an old woman I shall wear purple,” says the poem by Jenny Joseph.  Black Diamond® says, “Why wait?” The amethyst-hued blooms of Purely Purple™ are equally at home in a classic or contemporary garden design, completing the look wherever it is planted. Masses of vibrant purple blooms balance with elegant black foliage, creating a stunning best-dressed worthy ensemble. Purely Purple™ won’t steal the show, though, growing to a maximum size of 10-12 feet tall and 8 feet wide. If you’re looking for a “necklace” of beauty for your yard, plant Black Diamond® Purely Purple™ as a blooming hedge.  Sold in three gallon container.
