Cotinus Black Velvet Smokebush
18 inch Cotinus coggygria Black Velvet Smoke Tree. This slow growing 12 to 14 foot small decorative tree is hardy in zones 4 to 9 and produces these wonder long plumes of pink fluffy flowers from June to August. This appears as if the tree is surrounded by a cloud of pinkish smoke. This specimen plant prefers well drained soil in full or part sun.
