Cottinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’ (Smoke Bush)... considered a tree but I grow it as a shrub, whacking it back hard each spring to keep the height lower and make it bush out. easily grows 7-8' tall in a season. glows purple with the sun behind it.
Known for its intensely fragrant white flowers, the tea olive tree is hardy in zones 8 to 10. Originally from Asia, it is now used in areas where winter temperatures do not drop below 10 degrees. Its blossoms, with the fragrance of apricot, a ripe peach, jasmine or oranges, can appear several times during the year, including on a warm winter day.
