Cotinus Coggyria ‘ Royal Purple’:

 

We love plants that aren’t green, not only because they add some colour to your garden, but because Nature doesn’t just ‘do’ green so neither should we!

 

This variety is slightly smaller than some of the Cotinus, and so is perfect in a small garden – you do have to give it a bit of a clip to keep it to shape though, which is best done in spring.

 

This is called the smoke bush, as it has grey flower plumes in summer, but it’s best just before the leaves drop in winter with low sunshine highlighting the colours.
