Where there's Rain, there's a healthy Smoke Bush

11 Jan 2019

There might well be fire where there’s smoke. Equally, where there’s rain, there’s a healthy smoke bush. That’s certainly what we have discovered with the botanically named ‘Cotinus coggygria’. The recent summer rains have really given our smoke bush a sizeable growth spurt lately. It is guesstimated to have had around 2m of growth recently and the spectacular bush/tree will no doubt be putting on a brilliant display this autumn as its annual colour change takes place. The current deep purple leaves will give way to brilliant orange, peach and scarlet hues. Our display smoke bush (Plant No. 187) is around 20 years old and given its manageable size makes a great addition to any garden. The smoke bush is native to large parts of southern Europe, Asia and the Himalayas to Northern China.
