I believe the shrub you are looking for is Loropetalum, otherwise known as fringe flower, fringe bush, or Chinese witch hazel. There are both white (Loropetalum chinense) and pink (Loropetalum c. rubrum) flowering types available. The foliage of this shrub is purplish-green to burgundy. The shrub prefers loose, well-draining, acidic soil and full sun to partial shade. Thrive best in warmer regions (like the South) but with suitable winter protection, it can be grown in cooler areas as well.
