The Royal Purple Smoketree is a wonderful choice for bringing vibrant color into your garden without increasing your gardening work. This easily grown large bush will be happy even in dry, rocky soil, and it grows into a rounded bush about 10 feet tall, and as much across. The foliage emerges in spring a brilliant purple-red color, and becomes plum-purple all summer and into fall, without fading. All summer long it is crowned with a remarkable cloud of smoky-pink, coming from fine hairs that surround the developing seeds. This unique feature alone would make this a great garden plant, but combined with the rich foliage color it becomes a must-have for everyone. Us it to fill corners of your property, or plant it as a striking lawn specimen. Plant in a row for an informal screen or hedge that will give you privacy and beauty, for no work at all.

  • Striking rich purple foliage brightens any garden
  • Unique cloud of pinky-purple mist all summer
  • Holds its leaf color from spring to fall
  • Thrives even in dry, rocky soils
  • Number one choice for more color without extra work

Plant your Royal Purple Smoketree in a sunny place in any soil that is not always wet. This bush thrives in poor, rocky soils, and once established it is drought resistant and hardy. It grows across almost all the country, has no pests or diseases and it is even left alone by deer. It can be pruned as needed, and will quickly re-sprout with vigorous stem of leaves that are extra large and extra colorful. Use this bush anywhere and everywhere in your garden, for vibrant colors and easy care.
