Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’

Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’

Compact, rounded habit. Deep purple leaves progressively darken into summer. In midsummer, large airy smokelike blooms add significant volume to the profile, completely engulfing the plant. Fall weather transforms the deciduous foliage to vibrant oranges and reds. Plant in full sun, likes dry to moist soils. Marginally hardy and susceptible to winter dieback.
