I planted a smoke tree in the backyard (full sun). The blossoms/leaves were a burgundy/purple color but now it is more green. Does it change colors toward fall? How do I get the color back? Thanks

Purple smoke tree should retain its purple color throughout the year as long as it gets adequate sunshine. Sometimes the foliage starts out green and then changes to purple as the weather cools. This is probably what is happening to your plant. It should turn purple in the fall. Best wishes with your garden!
