Cotinus coggygria 'Black Velvet' - Smokebush

Cotinus coggygria 'Black Velvet'

Smokebush

'Black Velvet' Smokebush produces extremely dark purple leaves in late spring which serve as a perfect setting for the pink smoke-like flowers in June. Cotinus 'Black Velvet' retains its deep foliage color better in the summer heat than most purple Smokebushes. Selected by S. Campbell of Sebastopol, California.

PRN Preferred:  The deepest purple foliage we’ve seen for a Cotinus, more heat resistant color.
