 The royal purple smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple') gets its name from the tiny flowers that appear in spring and early summer, giving the impression of a cloud of smoke. The leaves of this tree change color throughout the seasons, beginning with a maroon shade that turns almost black by late summer, then crimson in fall. The royal purple smoke bush grows to 8 feet tall in Colorado and is hardy in USDA zones 5 to 9. May grow in zones 4 next to buildings and with plenty of mulch-tends to die back to the ground until it is deeply rooted and will only grow in shrub form in Colorado. Worth the effort! The color is unmatched!

Choose an area of your yard or garden that receives full to partial sun and has fast draining, fertile soil. While the royal purple smoke bush can grow in part shade, its color will be more prominent if planted in full sun.
