Cotinus coggygria 'Winecraft Black'

Smokebush

  • In spring, round leaves emerge rich purple but as summer's heat comes on, they turn a deep near-black tone and finally light up in an array of reds and oranges in fall.
  • In early summer, large, soft panicles of bloom appear that become the misty "smoke" that makes this such a popular landscape plant.
  • Unlike other smokebush, it naturally has a rounded, dwarf habit which means that finally, every landscape has room for this unique plant.
  • Winecraft Black smokebush is very easy to care for and requires little to nothing in the way of regular maintenance.
  • Plant in full sun for best color and flowering.
  • Pruning will rarely be required but may be done in spring
  • Smokebush makes a striking specimen, but is also effective as a low hedge or mass planting.
