Royal Purple Smokebush
Cotinus coggygria Royal Purple
Looking for a unique accent tree or shrub? This could be your answer. Incredibly tall and vigorous branches adorned with a spiraling array of dark purple leaves create a dense forest of depth. Reaching a mature height of around 10 ft, the Royal Purple Smokebush can pack a lot of spice and be used in a variety of landscaping assortments either to create a natural barrier as a hedge or border, showcase as a specimen in a pot or planter, or anything you want to use it for! Its tall rounded growth habit gives it a gentle appeal which is characteristic of smokebushes but what sets this one apart is its smokey blooms that create cloud-like plumes in the summer. What is also great about this bush is its deciduous nature. Royal Purple Smokebush has leaves that transform during the fall from its dark purplish-red to a bright scarlet which truly lives up to its name of being a sight to behold like watching royalty parading down a rustic avenue.
