Plant Details - Purple Smoke Tree
back to plants   |   back to All Listed Plants list

  • Sunlight: full sun
  • Description: This is an upright, spreading, loose and open, multi-stemmed shrub.  It often grows wider than tall.  In the spring it is covered with rich, purple foliage, and in mid-  summer large plumes of  feathery flowers appear.  These smokey-purple panicles form a dense veil of blooms giving the appearance of a cloud of smoke, that lasts from mid-July to October.  This tree makes a striking specimen tree, or can be used as an accent plant.  It  thrives in the Carolinas and does well with minimal care.
  • Size: 9'-10' tall.
