About how large will a coppiced cotinus coggygria get?

15 years ago

I purchased a cotinus coggygria "Royal Purple" and I plan to coppice it; I don't care if it smokes as I'm interested in the foliage. How long should I wait before I begin to coppice; I'm sure I should wait until the plant becomes established, but how long? It's only about two feet high now. Also, when the plant is established and I'm coppicing, about how large will the plant become? I'm trying not to plant something I have to move later (yes, trying something different). I'm tired of feeling that I am just a plant relocating machine in the spring! Any guidance would be appreciated.
