The most popular & widely grown form of 'smoke bush'.
A lovely deciduous plant with rich wine red foliage which turns glorious shades of scarlet & orange in autumn. The leaves have a waxy sheen which holds water droplets & looks stunning with the morning dew. It produces smokey plumes of pink flowers in summer. Any well drained soil, sun best.
Tips: cut back hard in winter to produce the most colourful new growth
