Main asset

Large round Eucalyptus-blue leaves in summer, on red petioles, and contrasting with young purple shoots. Beautiful autumn colors.


Vigorous shrub (shoots more than 1 meter per year), prune back shortly at the end of winter to enjoy the brilliant color of its young shoots. Good resistance to drought.

Globe Planter

Recent Dutch variety found in a seedling of Cotinus coggygria at Nurseries H. Kolster.
Vigorous, it is interesting for its young purple shoots standing out on the bluish mature foliage, giving a color contrast uncommon in shrubs. In autumn, the entire shrub becomes fluorescent red.
