A strong backbone of interesting leaves in the garden will hold a design together, even when flowering plants are not at their peak. However, we can quickly find ourselves in a foliage frenzy, choosing exciting leaves in every color from purple and chocolate to lime and rich gold, with spots and splatters or stripes and streaks. Noteworthy Characteristics: The blue-gray mature foliage shifts to a riot of fluorescent red,orange, and pink in autumn. Like many smokebushes,‘old fashioned’ is deer resistant. Care: Responds well to periodic hard pruning which will create larger foliage. Overview Height 6 feet Spread 5 ft.
