Cotinus Golden Spirit
Cotinus 'Golden Spirit'
Golden Spirit is a unique new 'Smoke Bush' from Europe, and one with a difference; brilliant lime to golden-yellow foliage from late in spring. As autumn progresses this fresh foliage hue is replaced by vivid coral, orange and red tones. Later in summer it's topped with usual plumes of smoke-like flowers.

Brilliant foliage feature summer and autumn, smoke-like flowers late in summer.

Uses: Wonderful specimen tree and as a summer mid-tier feature in shrub borders.
Position: Best in an open and sunny situation. Colour's enhanced by cold winter conditions and a dry summer. Needs a freely-drained soil and does best if not overfed or fussed over.
Care: Prune heavily late autumn after leaves have fallen to retain shape and vigour for the following season. Deciduous.
