Product information "Red Smoketree 'Royal Purple'"

The dark red foliage of the red smoketree is alone a feast for the eyes. When in June and July also the reddish brown petals appear, this ornamental shrub turns into a real eye-catcher. But even after flowering, the plant is good for a surprise; the typical, wig-like seeds appear and the autumn months also provide a charming autumn colouration.

Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple' is absolutely hardy and adaptable to city climates. It tolerates both dryness and heat; only acidic soils should be avoided. If the soil is too acidic at the selected site, lime can be incorporated and the pH value increases. Pruning is hardly necessary, but in the spring cutting to thin out the plant can be carried out, removing the old shoots on the inside. Likewise in the spring, the shrub can be cut to 15 cm, so the growth height remains at 1.5 m.
The 2 m high shrub is used as a solitary plant, in groups or also in hedges or containers. The unusual seeds can easily be integrated into flowering plants or bouquets.
