More details

This highly acclaimed variety of Smoke Bush has whorls of dramatic deep pink/purple foliage in vivid shades which are almost iridescent and will actually appear to glow if planted in a position where the sun can back-light it.  Frothy, feathery plumes of soft pink flowers fading to silver grey form a smoky haze above the foliage in mid to late summer.  Fully hardy and will do best in fertile, well drained soil preferring a sunny sheltered spot.  Can grow up to 5m but is easily trimmed to required size and shape.
