Common names: Purple Heart, Amaranth
Scientific name(s): Peltogyne spp.
Purple Heart is perhaps the most vibrant of all timber species. Unmistakable contrast of white sapwood versus bright “eggplant” purple colored heartwood is quite a sight to behold. With age the heartwood will darken thus decreasing the purple hue of the timber. Purple Heart live edge slabs available with us range from 0.50mt wide to 1.20mt wide and 1.50mt to 4.0mt long.
