 Golden Spirit Smokebush Tree

Cotinus coggygria 'Ancot' GOLDEN SPIRIT

 

GOLDEN SPIRIT (‘Ancot’) is a smoketree cultivar that is grown for its unusual golden foliage. This is a deciduous, upright, loose-spreading, multi-stemmed shrub that typically grows 8-15’ tall and as wide, however it can be easily kept more compact through annual pruning. Yellow golden leaves (to 3” long) suffused with green retain good color throughout summer, but turn amber, burgundy, scarlet and green in fall. it gets its common name of smoketree (or smokebush) from the billowy hairs which turn a smoky pink to purplish pink in late spring, thus covering the plant with fluffy, hazy, smoke-like puffs throughout summer.
