Originating in the wooded hills above the Mediterranean, the smoketree holds true to its name. The species boasts blooms that are wispy clumps of filaments—either cream or pink—that look like puffs of smoke. This easy-to-grow specimen is a good choice for a shrub border or other grouping. It can either flourish as a multi-stemmed shrub, be pruned to a single-trunk tree, or be cut back every year to maintain the look of a smaller bushy plant.

  • Takes on a smoky pink color from June through August
  • Works well for a shrub border or other grouping
  • Provides great fall color, with leaves turning from blue-green to yellow, red, and purple
  • Adapts to many soil types
  • Will be delivered at an average height of 2'
  • Branched 2 year transplant
