Cotinus ‘Purple Smoke Bush’ 10″ Pot


Cotinus Coggygria, Smoketree

Purple Smoke Bush is a gem in the garden thanks to it’s unique blend of colours that change throughout the seasons. A large deciduous shrub or small tree, its beautiful eye-catching Spring foliage is green overlaid with purple. Summer brings deep purple foliage that then turns deep orange and bronze in a burst of glory for an Autumn show.

Purple Smokebush gets its name from the clouds of smoke-like purple and pink “flowers” it produces in early Summer. These are very beautiful themselves, and are prized along with the foliage by florists. Grows best in full sun to partial shade and it is tolerant of drought and most soils, making it a great addition to many gardens.

This product is Economy Grade/ Imperfect stock, which means it’s a little bit scrappy, but with some tender loving care it can be returned to it’s former glory. Not recommend for a novice gardener.  Economy items cannot be returned or exchanged.
