Smoke Bush..... Smoking!


Smoke Bush..... Smoking! (Cotinus coggygria (Smoke bush))

this was new in last year,,,, it seems to have settled in nicely.. i am pleased with the effect of the varigated Rock Cress around the base... not so sure about that pot marrigold in the back ground though...

its a beauty is'nt it..give it a few more weeks old G and it will really come alive.... and DD2 i don't have a huge amount of space... but this is a very desirable foliege often used in floristry you pay up to £1.50 per stem retail for this... and baring in mind that i am a florist,,, i am quite happy to keep cutting it back and using it in arrangements for free..lol infact one of the reasons i planted it here.... it will need constant cutting back ;-)
