‘Grace’ smoke tree

Cotinus 'Grace'

koe-TY-nus Audio

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.

CareProvide full sun and well-drained soil.

ProblemsVerticillium wilt, powdery mildew.
