'Grace' smoke tree (Cotinus 'Grace')
koe-TY-nus
Synonyms:  Cotinus X 'Grace'
Genus:  Cotinus
This cross of the European smoke bush ( C. coggygria ) and the American smoke tree ( C. obovatus ) is a gem in the garden thanks to its multiseason interest. Its iridescent spring foliage is green overlaid with red; then its large pink clouds of blooms in summer are followed by brilliant autumn foliage that ranges from red to orange. 'Grace' combines well with just about anything; asters, ornamental grasses, and Japanese maples are good places to start.
Care:  Provide full sun and well-drained soil.
Problems:  Verticillium wilt, powdery mildew.
