Lovely! I tried a burgundy smoke tree here, because it's supposed to be deer resistant. Nope. They loved it! Your Golden Spirit is gorgeous.
A handsome shrub. I bet it shines in the morning light.
Awwwwwwwww it makes me miss my purple one. :0(
There's no other tree I love that the Cotinus smoke tree! The red colored ones are gorgeous. We've tried growing them and we have such drought conditions they do not do very well here.The smoke trees are native to Tennessee yet we can not seem to get the seeds to germinate and come up. If anyone has any tips or ideas on hoe to cold, heat or wet stratify these in zone 7 Id sure be interested.
