Cotinus Coggygria Royal Purple or the Purple Smoke Bush, is a deciduous, season-long performer which will add beauty to your garden with both its stunning foliage and distinctive summer flowers. After flowering, seed heads appear like a haze around the plant giving rise to the name. Native to Southern Europe and China and grown in the UK since the 1600’s, the smoke bush has long been a favourite with gardeners for its striking appearance. When the rounded leaves of Cotinus Coggygria Royal Purple emerge in the spring, they are a deep purple on top, and tinged green underneath. In summer, large fluffy panicles of pink flowers cover the bushes, fading to a greyish white like a puff of smoke, giving them their common name. As autumn approaches, the foliage turns orange-pink for a final splendid show before the leaves drop. Hardy in most parts of the UK, Purple Smoke Bush will reach a full height and spread of 4-8 metres in 10 to 20 years. For best flowering, do not prune, but remove any dead wood in spring. For larger foliage but fewer flowers, prune it hard in early spring. It can also be clipped into an attractive round shape. Plant your Cotinus Coggygria Royal Purple in full sun and plenty of space to produce the most flowers, although it will still give a good foliage show when planted in partial shade. It can be planted in an exposed or sheltered position in any well-drained soil. Tolerant of salt, it is a good choice for planting in coastal regions.
