A new Garden Debut introduction, this fantastic Illicium has beautiful dark burgundy-purple growth. As it matures foliage turns a glossy medium to dark green, with light variegation in younger leaves, and stays green all year. Like other Illicium, this one is sure to be a dependable performer in your garden. It’s easy going and will do best planted in part shade in moist soil. This fall Purple Glaze will add a nice contrasting color to the firery colors of your changing deciduous trees and shrubs. Since it is evergreen, it will provide a nice background all winter long. Next spring it will feature small white flowers with pink stripes. Purple Glaze is a fabulous choice when you wish to add a shrub with year-round interest to your landscape.
