Special Attributes

'Grace' Smoke Tree is a magnificent small tree or large shrub that gets its name from the unique, billowy, smoke-like, large pink "puffs" that cover the tree in abundance throughout the summer. But its the foliage that distinguishes 'Grace' from other varieties in the genus. Ovate to obovate Eucalyptus-like leaves to 3 inches long emerge a lovely wine red in spring, gradually maturing to a smoky purplish-plum-red in summer. The leaves hold their color well throughout the season turning a striking reddish-orange in fall before dropping for winter.




Landscape & Garden Uses

A moderate grower with a broad and rounded form, the Grace Smoke Tree will eventually top out at about 15 feet, making it a great choice for a number of planting options throughout the landscape or garden. It can be grown as a large shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree. Because it's so unique, we usually recommend planting as a stand-alone specimen in the landscape, as we do with Japanese Maples. That said, small groupings are nice as well or plant one on either side to accentuate an entryway. Ideal for use in purple-themed color gardens and Xeriscaping (low water need landscapes)

Spacing:  8-10' for solid hedges;  16 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

The Grace Smoke Tree is very easy to grow, adapting well to a variety of soil types and tolerates periods of drought when established. Well-drained soils are preferred. Constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. The best foliage color is achieved in full sun however it will tolerate some light shade. USDA Zones: 4a-8b  Find Your Zone >
