Compact size and large, white, slightly fragrant flowers make 'Purity' stand-out. The leaves put on a show of their own, emerging as bronze, changing to chartreuse and maturing as dark green. The contrast of color is stunning. Red colored buds form during summer and hold over through winter creating year-long enjoyment.
