Meticulously crafted by British plant breeder Peter Moore over the course of a decade, this interspecific cross between Cotinus szechuanensis and Cotinus coggygria ‘Velvet Cloak’ is a shapely prismatic marvel. Bathed in opulent plum-red hues, the oval wavy-edged deciduous leaves embellish a close-knit well-branched foundation beneath large long-lasting ethereal pouffes of small flowers with lanky rose and wine-colored filaments. Ideal for well-drained mixed borders, fertile woodland peripheries and patio containers, ‘Dusky Maiden’s hearty no-fuss foliar display becomes even more dazzling in a sunny spot, then ends the season blazing a gold, tangerine and scarlet-red fall finale.
