Height: 8′-10′ Spread: 8′-10′. Handsome, oval purple leaves on this large shrub are showy as is, but the clouds of tiny beige flowers that resemble puffs of ‘smoke’ in midsummer make this plant really stand apart. Subject to winter dieback, though it recovers quickly to make a fine plant each year. Best in a protected location. Full sun or part shade. Zone 5.
