The deep rich purple foliage stands out and shows off. Topping off the intense color of the foliage is the long lasting pinkish-purple airy seed clusters making this small tree or large shrub appear to be covered in a cloud of 'Smoke'.
The foliage holds it's color all summer and in the fall turns an intense red. Drought tolerant once established.
