Cotinus obovatus

American Smoke Bush

Available on backorder


The name smoke tree comes not from the 15-25cm flower clusters (green-yellow, insignificant, dioecious) which bloom in the summer, but from the airy smoky pink to pink-purple hairs on the spent flower clusters that give the tree a hazy, smoke-like puffy appearance. The summer “smoke” display makes this a striking accent plant. It also produces some of the best fall color of any of the native American trees and shrubs.
