Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush, Cotinus coggygria, is a highly prized, showy ornamental shrub. It features a petite, rounded, multi-stemmed form with large airy panicles of pink flowers. Muted gray overtones appear at the ends of branches in summer, atop rich burgundy foliage, creating a stunning ethereal effect. The round leaves turn a vibrant reddish-orange color in fall. 

Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush is a no-fuss, easy-to-maintain, drought-tolerant landscape stunner. It grows 3-4 ft in height and width in Hardiness Zones 4-8, about half the size of other Smokebush varieties. Lovely used in fresh and dried floral arrangements, Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and other beneficial pollinators and is often overlooked by browsing deer. Because of its nice compact size, it can be planted in a mixed border, in containers, or used as a spectacular low-growing hedge.

Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush Care

Plant Velveteeny™ in a full sun location that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily, in moist well-draining soil. Once Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush matures, it's adaptable to drier soils. Avoid planting in poorly draining, soggy soils.

Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush will benefit from application of a well-balanced all-purpose fertilizer in spring. Early spring is also the time to lightly prune to shape the plant. If planting in a container, select a pot at least 30 inches in diameter to accommodate the large rootball and make sure it has plenty of drainage holes. When growing shrubs in containers, they may require more frequent watering than if they were planted in the landscape. 

Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush Spacing

Velveteeny™ Purple Smokebush is gorgeous when used as an accent or focal specimen in a mixed border, or as a screening hedge when mass planted. If planting as a screening hedge, space plants 3 1/2 feet apart, center on center, for a dense growing hedge.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
