Leycesteria formosa 'Gold Leaf'
Bright purple pendulous blooms contrast beautifully with golden-yellow foliage on this true from seed plant. Hardy in zones 7-9, Leycesteria is grown as a perennial that will die back to the ground and return each spring. In the South it will grow into a handsome shrub with year-round color and produce loads of delicious edible berries that will reach 3-5 feet. This plant can also be grown as an annual that will provide quick color in beds and containers in full sun to part shade and well drained soil. Pkt. 20
