Early Amethyst’ typically grows to 3-4’ tall and 4-5’ wide. Flowers are followed by large clusters of bright, glossy, amethyst-purple fruits (each 1/8” diameter) which ripen in late summer and put on their best show through October. Fruits ripen earlier on this cultivar than with species plants, hence the cultivar name. Fruits persist beyond the point of leaf drop but not very far into winter. New leaves emerge light green in spring, turning to dark green in summer before finally turning to golden-purple in fall.Great for use in mass plantings, decorative hedges, large containers, or as an accent or specimen plant.
