  • Comments: A beautiful and highly decorative shrub where ever it is used in the landscape. The rich purple foliage does not fade in the sun and brings a wonderful color to the garden. In June - August seed heads develop into huge fluffy clouds of smoky pink (hence the name) and are prized for their delicate flower-like display. If it gets too tall or open it can be cut back to ground-level when necessary to induce compact new growth. A hardy and trouble-free shrub with multiple uses in the garden.
