With oval burgundy leaves that deepen to near black through the summer months, ‘Royal Purple’ smokebush is a striking focal point in any garden. In late summer, long, fuzzy, plumelike flowers cover the plant, creating a smokey effect that gives the shrub its common name. Its leaves turn a vibrant purple red in fall, providing three seasons of varied color.
