In July and August this vigorous, deciduous shrub is festooned with fluffy plumes of purplish-pink flowers that look like a haze of smoke. The large, purple-tinted oval leaves need the sun to bring out the colour, then turn a brilliant shade of translucent red in autumn. This is an excellent specimen plant for a sunny shrub or mixed border.
Prefers full sun or partial shade in a free draining soil.
