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.

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 Emerald Green Thuja.

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.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Emerald Green Thuja 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 Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
