Velvet Cloak Smokebush
Enter Zip Code for estimated delivery:

Velvet Cloak Smokebush, cotinus coggygria 'Velvet Cloak', is an upright and spreading form of Smokebush, which maintains it's dark purple color extremely well throughout summer, with panicles of smoky-purple to beige flowers blooming in mid-summer. This gives the effect of a cloud of smoke. It is a tough and tolerant shrub, requiring well-drained soil; and Velvet Cloak Smokebush thrives in part to full sun; the leaves are greener in shade, burgundy in full sun. It tolerates considerable drought once it is established. With minimal pruning it will naturally form a large shrub or small tree over time. If pruned to 6 to 8 inches tall in winter, it will produce long stems with striking, oversized foliage. It makes a wonderful accent as a shrub border, can be planted as a specimen, or as a patio tree. May be pruned back hard in spring. Many people grow this shrub just for its vivid fall color.
