Smoke Bush

Cotinus coggygria

Deep purple foliage provides a dramatic contrast to the usual green and oat-coloured grasses. Misty pink clouds of flower, emerging in late spring to early summer, waft gracefully above the dramatic rounded foliage and persist for months, followed by spectacular crimson autumn foliage. A real feature in the dry garden at The Garden of St Erth. Medium growth rate.

How to grow

Plant in full sun to part shade, prefers free-draining, fertile and moist soil but is generally not fussy. Drought and frost tolerant once established. Flowers appear on 2nd year wood. Responds well to hard pruning annually if grown for foliage rather than flowers.
