THE PURPLE HEART IS AN AMERICAN AWARD NOT A GERMAN ONE.

(addendum)But the German army in the late part of WW1 and in WW2 did have a corresponding award, simply known as a "wound badge"

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/service_awards/wound_badges_main.htm

Gives a fairly comprehensive overview.

"It was to awarded in black for one to two wounds, in silver for three to four wounds, and in gold for five wounds or more. In cases of severe wounds the higher class was presented."

A Google for "German wound badge" will find several original and reproduction ones offered for sale.
