This is no “green” shrub. It starts the season with rich purple foliage, becoming deeper in color until it is nearly black, and then in fall it turns a brilliant orange.. This semi-dwarf dark-leaf smokebush is a Proven Winners, therefore you know it is special. Early summer brings wispy redflowers that become the beautiful, hazy-violet “smoke” that gives this plant its name. It has a rounded, semi-dwarf habit.
Foliage: Summer – purple black
Fall – brilliant orange
Exposure: Part sun
