Prized for its larger-than-average glossy purplish blue fruit, impressive cold hardiness and superb ornamental aspect, this versatile western and central North American denizen grows as a large multistemmed shrub or small, branching deciduous tree. Clustered self-fertile white flowers muster a sweet smell amongst handsome gleaming dark green leaves that signal autumn with orange and crimson shades. Adored by culinary buffs and wildlife alike, the nutritious sweet juicy berries are cultivated commercially in Canada, while ‘Smokey’s medium-sized upright and spreading habit makes an undemanding pollinator-friendly specimen in smaller gardens, edible landscapes, woodland peripheries and mixed borders. Medium Band.
