WINECRAFT GOLD® Smokebush

Zone: 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 4-6' Width/Spread: 4'

Lighten up the landscape with Winecraft Gold® cotinus. This improved gold smokebush is a better, more vigorous production plant with good burn resistance. Better branching creates a denser, fuller shrub, for better presentation in the container and the landscape. Green flowers in early summer age to the pink smoke-like puffs that give this plant its common name.

Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part sun (4-6 hrs/day)

Soil: Any average, well-drained soil will do.

Water: Average water needs; drought tolerant once established.

Fertilizing: Little needed; one application of a granular (not liquid) rose fertilizer in early spring is sufficient, though you may fertilize monthly from early spring through late July if desired.

Pruning: Generally speaking, you should avoid regular pruning of smokebush. You can prune selectively to develop the desired habit and shape in late winter/early spring; however, avoid cutting the plant back each year. This not only encourages a funky, unruly branching, but because smokebush Blooms on old wood, it also removes developing flower buds for later that summer.
