Distylium comes in a range of sizes and a couple of them have colorful leaves. Light-O- Day Hydrangea can take some shade but may have fewer flowers than it would in a sunnier spot. Pink Frost Florida Anise-tree is great in shady spots and has variegated leaves and red flowers. Crimson Fire and Sparkling Sangria Fringe Flower both have gorgeous purple leaves and flowers.
