Purple shrubs that don't lose leaves and have no thorns needed.
This is my first posting here. I am new to gardening. Actually, we are just planning our gardens now. We have a large area with limestone walls that will be a parterre garden. Initially I intended to section the quadrants with boxwood, but recently have been interested in a purple-colored shrub or hedge instead. I am not looking for something lose and flowery, but something that has dense qualities like boxwood. We have small children, so nothing with thorns please.
We are in NE Ohio and the area in question gets lots of sun.
