Purple Hopseed Bush, Dodonaea viscosa 'Purpurea'

Photo by Doreen Wynja

Great color show, bronzy-green foliage turns deep purple-red in fall; pinkish fruit brightens summer. Dense branches can be trimmed as hedge or espalier; unpruned it makes a superb evergreen screen.

Bill Marken added this to California Gardener's June Checklist
Here's a screen or hedge for near-impossible situations. Hopbush, or Dodonaea, is one of the few plants that can thrive in dry, shady spots. (Most other shade plants seem to like moist conditions, don't you think?) It also grows quickly. In other words, it fits the perfect profile for a screen or hedge plant, in shade or sun, or in a combination of exposures. Its evergreen foliage is bronzy purple in the sun, greener when grown in the shade. Botanical name: Dodonaea viscosaCommon names: Hop bush, hopseed bushUSDA zones: 8 to 11 Water requirement: Light to moderate Light requirement: Full sun to partial shade, even almost full shadeMature size: 10 to 15 feet tall and wide Growing tips: Prune to control the size and shape. Trim back the branch tips for bushier growth. Remove the lower branches to train it into a single-trunked tree.
