COTINUS

Commonly known as Smoke bush, Smoketree

All flower JUL-SEPT

Attractive billowy, smokey plumes in late summer and a good, variable autumn colour are the attractive features of this large shrub.

Genus of 5 species of deciduous trees and shrubs from rocky habitats from the Mediterranean region to China and southern USA.


  • Deciduous - trees and shrubs
  • Tall Shrub
  • Full sun - purple-leaved varieties show best colour in full sun.
  • Partial shade
  • Additional Features - Good to know - the smoky haze of soft flower plumes in summer give the plant its common name. Cutting stems back hard to within 2-3 buds of the base in early spring produces larger leaves.
  • Pests & Diseases - susceptible to Verticillium wilt. Powdery mildew may affect purple-leaved varieties.
  • Place of origin - Mediterranean to China, southern USA.
  • Soil Conditions - Fertile moist well-drained soil
