'Golden Spirit' smoke tree replaces the usual purple foliage of Cotinus with golden leaves. If you leave the plant in the shade for awhile, the foliage will fade. But once planted in a sunny spot, it will go for the gold and slowly grow to about 8 feet. 'Golden Spirit' changes colors in the fall: coral, orange and then red. Hardy in USDA Zones 4 to 8.
Many ornamental grasses are graceful garden ornaments, and then there are others that you'll wish you'd never planted.Advertisement
