Cotinus x dummeri 'Grace'
Do you crave something to breathe new life into your existing yard? This crafty little plant will bring interest throughout the year because of its manipulative seasonal transformations. Starting in spring, you’ll see a wondrous array of green foliage with red touches and flowers peeking throughout. During the summer, its illustrious pink plumes peak above and around the bush followed by the cool autumn air starting a colorful transformation from its green, red tinged foliage to a vibrant fall color with reds and oranges taking their place. Like other smokebushes, it grows relatively fast and reaches 12 ft all around but is known to grow larger in perfect conditions. Along with its remarkable soil tolerance, being able to grow in rocky and infertile soils, it can be grown from zones 4 to 8 which makes it very versatile to several different temperature extremes. You can plant this with any landscape application in mind. Showpiece, soft border or hedge, along with ornamental grasses, or anything you like.
