This cross of the European smoke bush ( C. coggygria ) and the American smoke tree ( C. obovatus ) is a gem in the garden thanks to its multiseason interest. A delightful composition of mixed textures with its feathery plumes wedged between large, six inch, obovate leaves. This plant is a vibrant wine-red when young, darkening to a plum-red at maturity. Its leaves turn brilliant orange-red in the fall. 'Grace' combines well with just about anything; asters, ornamental grasses, and Japanese maples are good places to start.
