Go Back Smokebush Golden Spirit

Golden Spirit 'Smokebush'
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

Spectacular foliage emerges lime green and matures to brilliant gold and then coral, orange and red in fall. Smoke-like plumes of whitish-pink flowers add interest. The foliage will not scorch in the sun unless conditions are extremely dry. Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers somewhat infertile loams, but performs well in poor, rocky soils. Sharp drainage is essential. Plants have shallow fibrous root systems. If bloom is desired, prune very lightly in early spring only as needed. If bloom is not a concern, stems may be cut back hard in early spring to a framework to induce growth of vigorous new shoots with larger than normal leaves.
