Dark and Smokey!

Winecraft Black Smokebush (Cotinus coggygria ‘NCCo1’) is the first ever smokebush that has survived the rigorous trials it takes to become a Proven Winners selection, so you know that it has to be the cream of the crop! That’s just one of the many reasons to love this new introduction to the gardening world. Here are a few more:

The spring leaves emerge rich plum purple and turn to deep almost-back as the summer heats up. In early summer big fluffy panicles of the tiniest blooms appear that turn into the misty “smoke” that gives the plant it’s unusual name (and unusual look!). In the fall the leaves light up in an unexpected display of oranges and reds.

Unlike other smokebush variants, Winecraft Black stays small and naturally rounded. It doesn’t get huge and out-of-bounds. It is perfect for any size garden, from big country gardens to small urban gardens and everything in-between. You don’t have to prune it for it to keep it’s naturally dwarf appearance.

Perfect for containers alongside your patio or porch. Several together make a show-stopping low hedge or mass planting, especially when in full-on ‘smoke’ mode.

Even if you’ve never thought of using smokebush before, Winecraft Black Smokebush is here to change your mind. Add this dark beauty to your landscape today!

* Kaleidoscope-changing foliage – purple to black to glowing fall colors
* Unique hedge or foundation planting
* Naturally dwarf – fits any garden
* Good container plant
