Zone 8. 2'tall. Mature leaves are dark purple, new leaves bright green. It now has the beginnings of bright magenta flowers and has dark purple grape-like fruit.

Some sort of Capsicum? Reminds me of Cayenne Pepper (Capsicum frutescens) except for the fruit.

I'm thinking it is Ornamental Pepper (Capsicum annuum 'Black Pearl')
