Cotinus, commonly known as Smoke Tree or Smoke Bush, is a genus of flowering plants in the family Anacardiaceae. The most popular species include Cotinus coggygria and Cotinus obovatus. These deciduous trees or shrubs are known for their stunning foliage and smoky, cloud-like flowers, making them a favorite among gardeners and landscapers.


  1. Location: Cotinus trees thrive in full sun to partial shade. Choose a well-draining location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily.

  2. Soil: Plant Cotinus in well-draining, fertile soil with a pH of 5.5 to 7.5. These trees can tolerate a wide range of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils.

  3. Spacing: When planting multiple Cotinus trees, space them at least 10 to 15 feet apart to provide adequate room for growth and air circulation.

  4. Planting: Dig a hole twice as wide and slightly deeper than the root ball. Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Fill the hole with soil, tamping it down to remove air pockets. Water thoroughly to settle the soil.


  1. Watering: Cotinus trees are drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering during the first growing season is essential. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.

  2. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for application rates.

  3. Pruning: Prune Cotinus trees in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Remove dead, damaged, or crossing branches to maintain an open, healthy canopy.


  1. Pest and Disease Management: Cotinus trees are relatively resistant to pests and diseases. Monitor for aphids, scale insects, and powdery mildew, and treat as needed using appropriate control methods.

  2. Mulching: Apply a 2 to 3-inch layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to help conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth.

  3. Winter Protection: Cotinus trees are cold hardy to USDA zones 5-9, but in colder regions, you may need to provide extra protection by wrapping the trunk with burlap or using a tree guard.


  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Cotinus trees provide a stunning display of colorful foliage and unique, cloud-like flowers, adding visual interest to gardens and landscapes.

  2. Low Maintenance: Once established, Cotinus trees require minimal care and are drought-tolerant, making them suitable for low-maintenance gardens and xeriscaping.

  3. Wildlife Attraction: Cotinus trees provide food and shelter for various bird species, as well as nectar for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies.

  4. Erosion Control: Cotinus trees have extensive root systems that can help stabilize soil and prevent erosion on slopes and embankments.
