Winecraft Black Smokebush starts the season pushing out deep red foliage before blooming in summer months. During fall, the foliage turns bright orange before dropping for the winter. Winecraft Black is more compact than most smokebush making it great for foundation planting or as a hedge along a sunny property line.

Joseph's Take

I never understood the function of Winecraft Black Smokebush until I visited the propogation facility for Proven Winners in Michigan. There they planted it along a long farm fence as a hedge. The plants were neatly growing at about five feet in height in a long straight line. It was windy that day so their wispy feel was in full display, very beautiful.
