Purple Leaved Hopseed Bush

Dodonaea viscosa 'Purpurea'

An evergreen shrub or perennial with upright branches and leaves. Delicate, willow-like foliage is bronze-green throughout the year, and flushes burgundy-red with the arrival of cooler weather. Small, inconspicuous flowers are followed by papery, beige seed capsules. Dense branches can be trimmed as a hedge or espalier, as a Privacy screen, or as a soft backdrop to emphasize more vivid flowers.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
