Young Lady Pink Smokebush Tree
Cotinus x 'young lady'
‘Young Lady’ is a compact, shrubbier version of the European species. In comparison to the species, it is perhaps best noted for its more manageable size, its respectable bloom at an early age (hence the cultivar name) and its more floriferous and ornamentally attractive bloom. ‘Young Lady’ is a deciduous, upright, loose-spreading, multi-stemmed shrub that typically grows 4-6’ tall over the first 10 years. it gets its common name of smoketree (or smokebush) from the billowy hairs (attached to elongated stalks on the spent flower clusters) which turn a smoky pink to purplish pink in late spring, thus covering the plant with fluffy, hazy, smoke-like puffs throughout summer. ‘Young Lady’ reportedly has a much more prolific bloom than most other varieties
