A kaleidoscope of seasonal color captivates from spring through frost! Smoky plum-purple foliage deepens to nearly black then in fall it lights the landscape in wine reds and oranges. The rounded leaves are beautifully veined and after a summer shower, the water droplets glisten on the foliage like shimmering crystals. Wispy red flowers create a hazy-violet ‘smoke’ that gives this compact beauty its common name. Unlike conventional-sized Smokebush, Cotinus Winecraft Black® supplies a naturally rounded, compact habit that allows for placement in any landscape. The frothy flower sprays add a stunning airy texture to fresh or dried flower arrangements.

Cotinus General Information

Smokebush makes a striking specimen plant and is also quite effective as a lower hedge or mass planting. Colorful foliage and blooms provide interest from spring to frost. Soft panicles of blooms in summer create a misty 'smoke' that makes this a popular landscape shrub. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Cotinus Plant Care

Low maintenance. Pruning is rarely required. Blooms on old wood. Prune only to remove dead wood or lightly shape in spring. Plant in full sun for best color and flowering.
