The Purple Smoke Bush is a large, deciduous shrub with rounded, plum-purple leaves - translucently illuminated when back lit by the sun, and reliably turning reddish-purple in autumn. In summer wafty plumes of greyish flowers cover the surface of the plant appearing as though emitting 'smoke'. Plants are particularly drought tolerant and therefore make a stunning contrast to the greys and silvers normally associated with the arid garden. Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple' will grow on any soil but tends towards sickly, leggy growth if too moist or rich.
