The Royal Purple Smokebush provides an entirely unique effect in a landscape that's much more than just a colorful floral display. By mid-spring this shrub begins its entirely unique performance by producing signature fluffy, airy plumes that rise up from within the dense purple foliage. These rounded fluffy plumes have all the appearance of being pinkish-purple clouds of smoke that permanently hover above this colorful plant! Its signature colorful "smoke clouds" are actually innumerable clusters of miniature seed pods that make for a beautiful natural fireworks show long before the Fourth of July! This is a magnificent plant that first catches your eye with its bright foliage, and then holds it with its rare exhibit of natural beauty.
The Royal Purple Smokebush does best in full to partial sun and can reach a height of 15 to 20 feet tall at maturity with an equal spread. Cold hardy down to at least -20° F with no significant pests or diseases. This plant is the perfect accent piece in a landscape due to its large dramatic effect.
Beautiful flowers come in every shape, size and color but if you're looking to add a rare and exotic flame to your landscape throughout the seasons, look no further past the Royal Purple Smokebush!
