Pseudopanax ‘Purpureus’ – also known as Purple Houmspara. Rare to the UK, this exciting, wind-hardy evergreen from New Zealand is easy to grow in fertile, well-drained soil and benefits from full sun. This small multi-stemmed shrub grows to 2.4 metres high with glossy, purple, leathery leaves. Perfect for creating a dramatic visual when planted with lighter coloured plants or variegated foliage. In our experience, this has proved hardy to minus 5 degrees centigrade.
