It is purple leaved Cotinus [ there is also a lime green one ]
It will have a haze of fawn flowers which ii why it is sometimes called the smoke bush.
They can grow large 2-3 metre by 2-3 metre.
Can prune hard in winter, but then will not get the flowers, but bigger leaves. I like the big leaves so prune mine very hard.
