Smoke bush

smokeThis is what the smoke bushes look like this autumn, on a dry and sunny west-facing slope. I have one in my garden but it is the nursery-grown ‘Royal Purple’ variety. Very dark violet leaves fringed with the tiniest hem of crimson and green underneath. Handsome but nothing like as magnificent as these wild ones.
