Royal Purple Smoke Tree
Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'
|Description||Dramatic, long-lasting, pinkish purple, smoke-like airy seed clusters backed by reddish purple foliage create a prized small tree or large accent shrub. Foliage holds its color all summer, then turns scarlet red in autumn. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established water deeply occasionally.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 15 ft. tall, 10 to 12 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||Dark foliage, smoky blooms, and warm fall colors make this an excellent addition to the garden. Plant it with other shrubs to accentuate its colors or use it as an informal specimen.|
|Companion Plants||Ninebark (Ninebark); Tickseed (Coreopsis); Switch Grass (Panicum); Black-Eyed-Susan (Rudbeckia); Potentilla (Potentilla)|
|Care||Easy to grow in average soils; requires excellent drainage. Tolerates poor, rocky, infertile soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in spring. Prune heavily every few years to promote new growth with larger, more colorful foliage.|
