Purple Hopseed Bush is native or naturalized in many arid regions of the world; an adaptability that is echoed by this plant’s usefulness in a wide range of landscape styles and situations. Valued for its shiny, dense, purple to bronzy-green foliage and its coarse, tropical texture, this evergreen shrub needs little to no pruning to maintain interesting form, but can be pruned into a small tree or even sheared into hedges where a more manicured effect is desired. Purple Hopseed Bush is tidy and clean, a perfect combination for poolsides and patios. Low maintenance and water requirements also make it a great choice for use in hedges or screens, and as a foundation or a specimen plant.
