A purple leaved ‘smoke bush’ grown for its beautiful wine-red young foliage and glowing orange, red and yellow autumn tones. A fine, white, powdery bloom covers the upper surface of the foliage, adding to the plants overall soft and smoky appearance.
Plant in well drained and worked soil. Take care to plant the bud union and above the soil level. Water in well and keep soil moist until the tree is established. Fertilise when planting and again after the new growth.
