  • Latin name: Cotinus Coggygria
  • Common name: Smoke Bush, Smoketree
  • Supplied in 9cm pot
  • Characteristics: Our Cotinus ‘Candy Floss’ variety is a low maintenance deciduous garden bush that’s perfect for groups and shrub borders. It’ll grow upright when young, then begin to spread. It grows fuzzy, wispy pink flowers and foliage that turns to a brilliant mix of reds, oranges and purples in autumn.
  • Plant advice: The effective, showy Cotinus will thrive in a space that’s exposed to full sun or partial shade. The shrub prefers a moist, well-drained and moderately fertile soil. It’ll tolerate most soils, but ideally it is best to lean towards a sandy, loamy, chalky or clay type. The brush will require very little upkeep, however to aid its growth and tidy shape, we recommend you prune any dead, bent or diseased branches come late winter/early spring. Water thoroughly until established, especially during dry weather. Please note: As this shrub is deciduous, it will lose all its foliage towards the end of autumn, and fresh new leaves will appear again each spring.

Also known as the ‘smoke bush’, the Cotinus showcases an impressive display of fluffy and soft pastel pink flowers that resemble delicate, wispy cotton candy clusters. You will be able to enjoy these stunning blooms from mid-summer until Autumn – at which point this gorgeous plant’s foliage will begin to change its colouring to rich scarlets, vibrant oranges and deep purples.

This unique colour-changing quality introduces a distinctive and eye-catching landscape to your gardening. With the low maintenance the plant requires, it’s an attractive choice for your shrub border or a bold backdrop for your other plants.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only - The plant will be supplied in a growers pot. Depending on season, some plants may be pruned back to encourage growth and deciduous plants may arrive without leaves.
