Last year it was almost black when the old leaf fell away at flowering. This year it's tinged purple.

Very nice @Gonzer!

I've got one, too. And it seeds! Quite abundantly, babies galore.

Methinks it's baueri. It was a volunteer from some soil thrown in the yard skatey-eight zillion years ago

Off-topic: Is that Spanish Moss on the right, and does it need supplemental water in Oceanside?

It is. I also use it as a screen in the driveway. That (in the pic) is the long internode white form. I have about 8 or 9 forms. They benefit from a thorough wetting every coupla weeks and a good hose spritz once a week, more in hot weather.

Very interesting.  Thank you for this info.
