Notes:

This bush came when we bought this house 13 years ago. We do not know what it is. It is about 5′ tall and 5′ wide. It has abundant purplish flowers in the Fall. Bees and butterflies ignore it completely. No known plant problems. It did get frost bit (we are in Zone 8) and died back to the ground about 5 years ago, and it has taken years to be come flowering again.
