A kaleidoscope of seasonal color captivates from spring through frost! Smoky plum-purple foliage deepens to nearly black then in fall it lights the landscape in wine reds and oranges. The rounded leaves are beautifully veined and after a summer shower, the water droplets glisten on the foliage like shimmering crystals. Wispy red flowers create a hazy-violet ‘smoke’ that gives this compact beauty its common name.
Unlike conventional-sized Smokebush, Cotinus Winecraft Black® supplies a naturally rounded, compact habit that allows for placement in any landscape. The frothy flower sprays add a stunning airy texture to fresh or dried flower arrangements.
