It gets its common name of smoketree (or smokebush) not from the tiny, insignificant, yellowish flowers which appear in spring, but from the billowy hairs (attached to elongated stalks on the spent flower clusters) which turn a smoky pink to purplish pink in late spring, thus covering the plant with fluffy, hazy, smoke-like puffs throughout summer. But it is the foliage that particularly distinguishes ‘Royal Purple’. Leaves emerge a rich maroon red in spring, and then gradually mature to dark purplish-red to purplish-black in summer.
