Product Overview

Winecraft Black is the first Proven Winners smokebush, and is unique due to its rounded, dwarf habit. Its leaves are a rich purple in spring, but in summer's heat they turn a near-black before bursting into reds and oranges in the fall. In early summer, its smoke appears as large, soft panicles of bloom. No pruning or special maintenance is required, and it resists deer and rabbits.
  • 4-6 ft. tall and wide at maturity
  • Full sun (6+ hours) required
  • Hardy in zones 4-8, be sure to check your USDA zone to ensure success
  • 1 Gal. shrubs are 6-14 in. tall and about 1-year old at shipment, varies by season and plant
  • Shrubs shipped from November through April will arrive dormant; shrubs shipped April through October will arrive green or in bloom

Plant Life
So I'm not a gardener, but I wanted a nice bush for my front yard. I got my plants and 1 was dead all the leaves fell off. The other one didnt grow at all and my accessory plants the one additional ones to enhance the look of the bush also never grew. I look at the pictures and have nothing of that sort of growth or healthy looking. No color only small green leaves.

    Don’t buy them dormant
    Purchased ten of these. While they came in a gallon container, they were tiny. 8 out of the 10 have made it out dormancy. I replaced the two failed plants (see photo) with the non dormant quart size from the same grower and they came as significantly larger plants than any of the gallon sized dormant plants. I wish I had waited to buy non dormant quart sized plants as I feel a bit cheated out of about the 150 dollars I paid extra for the gallon sized

      A lot less than sales photo shows
      Plant much smaller than sales image. Here is what I received for $37. See photo next to nursery gallon plant for comparison. Basically a stick in the container.

        I am not sure if it is the time of year, what they look like before, or the temperature during shipment...however I ordered 3-4 of these in the last season, and they arrive like this...which required extra work and attention to get them to *hopefully* spring back. This is such a beautiful mature plant, I wish there was a way to find those in the local nursery to avoid mail ordering.

                I have come to expect Home Depot plant deliveries to be above average, and this Smokebush didn't disappoint. Arrived in perfect condition and is a good size. In fact it is larger than a smokebush plant I put in last year!

                  don't waste your money
                  The plant arrived extremely dry and almost completely dead in extremely loose soil. It looked like they just cut a branch off and stuck it in a pot of dirt. The roots were almost non-existent.

                    Barely a 1 qt plant recently up potted to a 1 gallon container. Not rooted at all and barely more than a couple of twigs. Very dissapointed.

                    Tiny plant sent for a 1 gallon order
                    I ordered a 1 quart container of this plant last spring. Because I liked it so much, I ordered a 1gallon specimen this year. What a disappointment. The pricier 1 gal plant was smaller than the 1 quart! Save your money and buy the smaller pot. Chances are, the plant will be exactly the same. Having said that, I really like this variety of smoke bush, but will shop in-store from now on. Proven Winners should send the same quality plants to their online customers as they do to the Home Depot stores.

                      I received my smoke bush about two weeks ago. Very small and almost no root system. Planted and treated with root stimulator. It doesn't look healthy, so we will see if it lives.

                        The Smoke bush is beautiful & thrived even in poor soil. In the first year this had great growth! At the end of the season the main branch was over 5 feet. Still skinny, but I was impressed. Buds are appearing for this spring & I'm looking forward to seeing the changes this year brings!

                        The Smokebush arrived in decent shape. Very well packaged, kind of hard to get it out of the box. It is now planted and doing well. I love the color, with the sun behind the leaves, they turn a lovely orange tinted smoke. Awaiting blooms now.

                        Looks healthy . It was about 5 inches tall when received. It has grown to about 7 inches tall and has good color . It looks like it will grow into a tree instead of a bush, time will tell. It is hearty and stands firm with the wind and bends for safety. This little plant wants to survive and thrive and I will do the best that I can to ensure a good chance for a long life . My little plant is family now. Very enjoyable.

                        It's only been planted for about a month now, but it's already showing healthy signs of growth. Color is a beautiful contrast to green shrubs.
