COTINUS coggygria 'Young Lady'
Common Smokebush, European Smokebush, Young Lady Smokebush
Young lady smokebush is a medium-sized deciduous shrub that originates from regions in southern Europe to eastern Asia. This compact selection has a mounded habit and oval-shaped, medium green leaves that turn yellow, orange or red in the fall. In summer, it produces many large panicles of inconspicuous flowers followed by long, curled, densely-packed, hair-like fruits that look like large puffs of smoke. These are dusty purple-pink and highly ornamental.
Smokebush prefers sites with moderately fertile, well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Enjoy 'Young Lady' in shrub borders or as a specimen plant.
