In this regard, where do purple smoke trees grow?
How to Plant a Smoke Tree
- Choose a planting spot with full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil with a pH between 3.7 and 6.8.
- Dig a planting hole twice as wide as the smoke tree's root ball and as deep as the root ball is tall, so that the top of the root ball is flush with the ground level.
One may also ask, how do you take care of a purple smoke bush? A 2- to 3-inch depth of organic mulch should be spread over the “Royal Purple” root system to help keep the soil moist, reduce weed growth and prevent mower injury to the stems. Shredded tree bark, wood chips and pine needles work well. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the stems, though, to prevent stem rot.
Hereof, how fast do smoke bushes grow?
Growth Rate The purple smoke tree grows moderately fast. The Arbor Day Foundation defines this as vertical growth of 13 to 24 inches per year.
How tall do smoke bushes get?
You'll see smoke bush described in catalogs and garden references as both a shrub and a tree. Left to its natural inclinations, it will grow into a tree. The Eurasian species, Cotinus coggygria, reaches a height of 15 feet; C. obovatus, a native of the southeast, is even taller, reaching 25 to 30 feet.
