This is a tropical shrub that looks like a Purple Smoke Tree, thus its common name “Tropical Purple Smoke Tree”. Another common name is “Caribbean Copper” or “Burgundy Wine”. The leaves are oval and bright burgundy-red. This colorful plant loves the sun. The cream colored flowers appear in the summer in large clusters. Care must be taken when around this plant because the white sap (latex) in the stems can damage the eyes or fish if it gets in the water. It makes a brightly colored accent tree or large shrub in a container.
