Draw the eye to this focal point in regal hues. Royal Purple Smoketree was first introduced from Holland in the 1950s, and has been a favorite specimen plant ever since, thanks to its colorful foliage and airy seed clusters. This stunning shrub commands attention, even when you provide it with little care.. Small flowers appear in spring, then mature into feathery, wine-red plumes. Amazing foliage all year, in regal tones of purple and maroon, gives this plant true multi-season "wow" factor. Use this as an accent shrub, and don't be surprised when you find yourself planning the entire landscape around this beautiful plant. Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'
