One of our favourite trees for colour, many classify Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ as a shrub but it will mature into a small four to five metre tree it left unpruned.
Its smooth oval/rounded leaves are a rich deep purple throughout the summer and its ‘smoke like’ floral display adds significantly to the interest and contrast.
Perfect for smaller gardens, its stunning foliage colour is very dependable and is another great option when planting to accentuate colours.
Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ is easily looked after and kept to the required size with a winter prune and shape up. Thriving on most well drained soils it prefers a sheltered position with good light levels.
A Bee-friendly tree, our Cotinus are available as a single stem or a multi-stem shrub.
Mature height: 3-5m
