Purple Leaf Sand Cherry
Tamarix Juniper

Purple Leaf Sand Cherry provides bright reddish-purple leaves that turn bronze-green in the fall. In the spring, tiny flowers with a pinkish white hue bloom. The flowers are small, but the impact comes from the shrub blossoming all at once.

The Purple leaf sand cherry can be susceptible to pests and diseases in more humid areas; a typical life span is approximately 15 years. Not suitable for a privacy hedge on its own but is often alternated with lilacs. Often used as an accent plant that attracts birds and bees.

Tamarix Juniper has attractive, year round, blue-green foliage that will pop on a winter landscape. Not only does it provide winter interest, Tamarix Juniper is unique in that it does not “hug” the ground as one would expect. If you're looking for a shrub that is low maintenance, rabbit resistant, and tolerant of a variety of conditions, try Tamarix Juniper.
