Design Ideas: This outstanding three-season specimen should become a featured focal point. Use in shrub borders for late season interest. Provide unique effects against evergreens and perennials in mixed beds. A fine foundation plant to highlight important points in the architecture, entries and windows. Excellent choice for adding background interest to fountains and water gardens. Worth considering for accenting stark mid-century modern landscapes or adding depth to Craftsman home gardens.

Easy to grow in average soils; requires excellent drainage. Tolerates poor, rocky, infertile soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in spring. Prune heavily every few years to promote new growth with larger, more colorful foliage.

History

In Europe, smoke trees were a dye plant for both cloth and leather tanning to create the color known as yellow fustic. Although it contains toxic sap, it was used by apothecaries as a coagulant.
