Cotinus

Smoke Bush

       
Cotinus coggygria ‘Daydream’  full sun  partial shade

With prolific and large ultra-fluffy plumes, packed full of shell pink and maroon flowers, winsome bluish green foliage and a compact multistemmed hearty habit, what’s not to love about this daydream? Its over-the-top floriferous display and fiery scarlet autumn encore were first observed more than 50 years ago at Michigan’s Newport Nursery and subsequently patented in 1959. Highly prized by horticulturists and savvy gardeners alike, ‘Daydream’ promises to lull your senses when ensconced near cohorts such as Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Ruby Slippers’ and Panicum ‘Warrior’.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 8' 0"–10' 0" high x 8' 0"–10' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Cotinus coggygria ‘Young Lady’  full sun  partial shade

If you’ve lusted after a Cotinus but didn’t feel like you had the room, consider this floriferous smaller statured Smoke Bush. Compact slow growing stems plus rounded glossy green leaves elevate a cream-tinged pink frothy mass of colossal flower pouffes. The astonishing floral presentation unfurls at an earlier age than most Cotinus, while the brilliant orange and red fall foliage vitalizes the late season garden. Developed by Dutch breeder, Hendrik Kolster, easily managed ‘Young Lady’ looks splendid in a good-sized container, ensconced near a bench and anywhere else that is tight on space.

Blooms May-July

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Cotinus ‘Golden Spirit’  full sun  partial shade
Cotinus  Golden Spirit

Hallmarked by a lambent-leafed spectacle bridging three seasons and signature gauzy panicles, this new upright Cotinus makes a dynamic mainstay for any garden. Young leaves emerge a lime-green color, turn a brilliant golden hue in summer, and then broadcast a glorious mélange of coral, orange and red in autumn.

An Adriana Sanders-van Harn introduction and a lively companion for blue flowering Clematis, Aconitums and Oakleaf Hydrangeas, ‘Golden Spirit’ develops as an open multistemmed deciduous shrub that appreciates average moisture, some protection from hot scorching sun and a pruning to maintain its size and good form. (pp#13,082)

Blooms July – August.

Size: 8' 0" high x 8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Cotinus ‘Grace’  full sun  partial shade
Smoke Bush

An arresting beacon as the sun casts a ruby glow through its purple-black leaves, ‘Grace’ inherits her elegance from Cotinus coggygria ‘Velvet Cloak’ and Cotinus obovatus. The sprays of tiny deep pink flowers throw a smoky, wine-colored fog over its robust form, and a close glance reveals bright yellow at the center of each bloom. Lovely in contrast with the silver foliage of Teucrium fruticans (Select Form), ‘Grace’ conveys a stately presence matched by few other plants.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 12' 0" high x 12' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
