purple smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’). this is the kind of form we'd be striving for so you can see underneath the canopy.
from Mosaic Garden Design in Eugene. Brilliant.
Cottinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ (Smoke Bush)... considered a tree but I grow it as a shrub, whacking it back hard each spring to keep the height lower and make it bush out. easily grows 7-8' tall in a season. glows purple with the sun behind it.
