This unique Smokebush will bring a burst of color to the landscape. Its flowers emerge in June to July, appearing like puffs of smoke above the foliage. In the fall, the foliage takes on intense shades of orange and red. This shrub really makes a statement, especially when paired with a plant that has dark purple foliage (like a Diabolo Ninebark or Sandcherry).
