Cotinus Coggygria Golden Lady Shrubs

Cotinus Golden Lady (Golden Smoke Bush, Cotinus coggygria Golden Lady)

This colourful new variety of Smoke Bush boasts eyecatching orange new shoots that mellow to golden yellow and then lime green as the season progresses before turning to brighter hues of yellow and orange in the Autumn. Unlike some golden varieties, Golden Lady does not scorch in sunlight. During July and August the shrubs are clothed in clouds of tiny cream coloured flowers giving the effect of a haze or smoke around the shrubs. This is a bushy and compact variety growing to approx 150cm x 150cm in 10 years, ideal as a contrast with darker leaf varieties and a great specimen shrub for a sunny spot.

Cotinus coggygria Golden Lady

Smoke bushes are at their best when grown in full sun, they prefer well drained good soil for good results. Although pruning is not strictly necessary, if they are cut back to 2-3 buds in late Winter or early Spring, the intensity of colour in the foliage display is improved and leaf size is increased. At the same time any diseased or congested branches can be removed to maintain a good framework.

A generous mulch in early Spring will also help to retain moisture and improve the show of foliage.
