Royal Purple Smoketree is a large multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright loose-spreading habit.  The round leaves emerge rich maroon and gradually darken to purplish-red or purple-black in summer and holds the color in fall.  Dramatic airy purple-pink hair billows from the tiny yellow flowers from spring to summer attracting butterflies.  Best blooms occur in full sun and well-drained soil.

Incredible selection! Plants were delivered in impeccable condition. When a plant was unavailable, I received a personal call from ownership. Small business feel with a large reach. Shop local people!!! ServeScape is now my go to!

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
