I bought a new tree today. It's a Purple-leaf Smoke Tree. This will be a nice balance to the purple-leaf plum trees we have in the landscape. With any luck it will grow and do well for us. According to the instructions it requires little to no maintenance and will grow in poor soil. Of course the one I bought is about 14 inches tall but maybe we'll get a beauty out of it like the one in this picture.
