I was hoping that someone could tell me something about this shrub that I have--it's called Purple Sand Cherry. I can not find any info on this.

I think you have a Prunus x cistena, also called a Purpleleaf sand cherry. This shrub has intensely reddish-purple leaves all season and produces pinkish-gray flowers in mid-spring. It is deciduous, and will grow to between seven and ten feet tall.
