Cotinus hybrid 'Grace'
Deciduous, Shrubs, Trees
Unusual and colorful shrub-trees creating broad, urn-shaped mass usually as wide as high. Naturally multistemmed, but can be trained to a single trunk. Common name derived from dramatic puffs of “smoke“ from fading flowers: as the tiny greenish blooms wither, they send out elongated stalks clothed in a profusion of fuzzy lavender-pink hairs.
