    This award-winning smoke bush has stunning, golden-yellow round leaves that turn coral, orange and red in autumn. In July and August, a haze of fluffy, smoke-like plumes of green flowers appear. This fairly new variety is an excellent specimen plant for a sunny spot. The leaves become an intense tran translucent gold the more sun the plant receives.

  • Garden care: In late winter or early spring remove any misplaced, diseased or crossing branches. Alternatively, to produce larger leaves, cut the stems back hard to within two or three buds of the base in early spring. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
