Autumn colour, Dramatic foliage
All the smoke bushes are shapely rounded shrubs or small trees, and are popular plants for their summer interest and autumn colour. This variety has deep marron, purple leaves that turn bright orange before falling in autumn. In summer it is covered with a smoky haze of soft open pinkish flower plumes, giving it a smoke-like appearance.
