Size chart

The Continus Coggygria - Royal Purple Smoke Tree is a deciduous shrub with maroon-red foliage and then change to a velvety purple color as the colder months approach. During the spring and summer months they do bloom very small flowers, but the real showstopper are the seed clusters that form red feathery plumes once the flower matures. This shrub can be pruned and kept as a small decorative hedge or border shrub to add some color pop. But can also be shaped into a small tree to give that wow factor to your landscape or garden. 

Though they do go into dormancy in winter months and lose their foliage, it is a fast and easy grower worthy of the crown and your garden.

Full sun to partial sun.

Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.

Pink flowers, non-fragrant

Well packaged but lost all leaves

It seemed my Purple Smoke Tree was well packaged. I received it and immediately took it out of the box and watered it as the soil was totally dry. Within 24hrs all the leaves except 6 dried up and fell off. I kept it indoors to baby it for several days. Had a few new leaves sprout so went ahead and planted it next to my other 2 beautiful purple smoke trees. Watered it well in the ground and am hoping for the best. I think it would have been much better and stronger if all the leaves hadn’t fallen off. Only time will tell.. it’s only been planted a week.

My plant arrived dead. In spite of writing Tristar I’ve had no response. Poor business behavior.


My plant was very small, about 12inches. Picture was deceiving. You show the actual plant what you are sending.
