Continus coggygria ‘Purpureus’
A good tree, a tree that should do well in Keizer.
The large panicles of wispy dark pink flowers produced in spring and early summer give the effect of a cloud of smoke.
This slow growing, open-crown, round, small tree eventually reaches to 12 to 15 feet tall (occasionally 20) and 10 to 12 feet wide. Fall color is usually good to excellent and ranges from yellow to orange and brilliant red-purple.
