Shrub or small tree has stunning dark red-purple foliage that turns scarlet in autumn. It has plume like flowers that looks like puffs of smoke, which is where smoke bush gets it’s name, one of the most drought tough deciduous plants available.
The nursery is set in the small mountain village of Blackwood, Victoria, which is a one hours drive west of Melbourne. The climate in Blackwood is warm in summer, and cool in winter, mild temperate, which allows us to grow a wide range of trees, shrubs, conifers, Rhododendrons and flowering perennials and is surrounded by gardens and can be enjoyed by nursery visitors.
