Cotinus coggyria 'Golden Spirit'

Cotinus coggyria 'Golden Spirit' (Cotinus coggygria (Smoke bush))

Unlike 'Grace' this one has always done well for me. It has much smaller leaves and isn't very keen on flowering too much, but the foliage is beautiful and bright and very healthy. It's been in about 6 years, and I haven't had to prune it except to remove the frosted tips in the spring. The flowers, when they do come, are not very showy, but lovely and frothy in form.

As you like 'frothy' I'll go and take a frothy photo for you of the 'other' Cotinus!

Thought mines was a gonner - took an age to put on growth. I lifted out the ground, cut it right back and stuck it in a pot. Its recovering now, thankfully!
