Where there's Smoke there's Beauty

You can't help but notice the unique form and incredible color of the Royal Purple Smoke Tree. Setting itself apart in the landscape, reddish-purple leaves are accompanied by clusters of wispy flowers that emerge like purple puffs of smoke.

It's a show of color that begins in spring and lasts all summer long. The oval shaped foliage then transitions to a striking scarlet in the fall.

A slow grower that features an open crown, the Royal Purple Smoke will eventually top out at 15 feet, making it suitable for a number of planting options throughout the landscape or garden.

Easy on the Eyes and Easy to Care for

Whether you prefer to plant it as a shrub or let it grow into a colorful specimen tree, the Royal Purple Smoke combines beauty, ease of care and versatility.

Adapting well to its environment, it thrives in a variety of soil types and tolerates periods of drought. As a hedge, showy border accent or attractive autumn specimen, the Royal Purple Smoke is a great choice with unlimited design potential.

Don't wait for the smoke to clear. Order yours today.

Love the tiny lilac blooms in the early summer, but don't stay long. We have pruned several times to get the shape . The dark purple-red foliage is beautiful, however in North eastern Kentucky, with one hard frost, which we had this year bit the tender leaves at the top, but will come back later. I would recommend this tree and love it. BTW, it's in our front yard as a specimen.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Royal Purple Smoke Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Royal Purple Smoke Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Royal Purple Smoke Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Royal Purple Smoke Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Is this bush dog friendly will it harm my dogs in any way?
Jennifer B on Jun 12, 2016
Best Answer: Yes, the seeds and other parts of the tree are poisonous. However, it is unlikely that the dog will be eating it. Still I would recommend keeping the animal away from the tree. One way to accomplish this is to place fencing around it. I have had one of these bushes in my yard growing up and when I moved after I grew up. We have had dogs and puppies my whole life around these bushes and never did the dogs bother them. Hope this helped.....
