Description

Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple', Purple Smoke Bush, is perhaps the most dramatic of the cultivars for this species. It produces its vibrant, deep purple foliage in late Spring quickly followed by large airy panicles of small white flowers on elongated pink pedicels. As the flowers fade the pedicels turns silvery-pink producing a wonderful plume-like display giving rise to its common name. These magical puffs of smoke last throughout much of the summer. The foliage often reverts to green as the summer develops and as autumn sets in it turns bright orange and red.
