Cotinus Coggygria, also known as ‘Smoke Bush or ‘Smoke Tree’, is a bushy deciduous shrub or small tree that is native to Europe and Asia. With its unique, billowy clouds of pink flowers that bloom in late Spring or early Summer, this plant adds a touch of colour and beauty to any garden.

One of the key features of this Cotinus is its striking foliage. The leaves are typically green but are tinged with blue, turning into shades of yellow, red and orange in Autumn making it an excellent choice for adding colour to the landscape during this season.

Propagation of Cotinus coggygria can be done by taking softwood cuttings in the summer or by seed.
