Royal Purple Smokebush

​Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'

Royal Purple Smokebush displays beautiful, velvety, dark purple foliage throughout the growing season, with panicles of smoky-purple to beige flowers blooming in mid-summer.  This gives the effect of a cloud of smoke.  It is a tough and tolerant shrub, requiring well-drained soil; and Royal Purple Smokebush thrives in part to full sun. The leaves are greener in shade, burgundy in full sun.
