A very unique, small tree that you will surely fall in love with… as an accent in your home landscape, or as a specimen flowering tree.
My neighbor calls it the Dr. Seuss Tree because it has plumes of purple foliage and furry cloud-like blooms between sections of rugged bark... kind of like those big shaved poodles.
Smoke Tree gets its name from the way it looks while in bloom. Like an airy cloud of smoke floating atop the pretty leaves.
This most unusual blooming effect comes from the fluffy heads that hold clusters of very tiny flowers.
For a touch of something unexpected yet highly ornamental, this is a smart choice for an accent tree.
Though delicate in appearance, your smoke tree is a tough landscape plant that can tolerate dry conditions. Your Smoke Tree has terrific resistance to insects and other damaging pathogens.
