I walked by this plant and was fascinated by the beautiful variation of colors. I took the picture in hopes someone can identify it. I really want to plant several of these in my back yard. Thanks in advance

    Smoke Tree. I did not have good luck with them in Tennessee. It was gangly and misshapen and finally a beaver from the river chewed it down. I was glad. They get about 20 feet tall.

    Sorry but that is definitely NOT a smoke bush/tree. It is a Tamarisk. I have one.

    I was going to say Smoke Tree, Cotinus obovats, too. They are pretty close though. Bobbie, now that you have two good ideas, you can look both of these up and decide what you have. It's beautiful, isn't it?

    I noticed there are no visible leaves on the plant. That makes me think it is a Tamarisk tree, and not a Smoke tree. We have both here in W PA, and the flowers are similar in some varieties.

    My original thought was smoke tree but I checked out the Tamarisk or Tamarix and I tend to agree tamarisk. Very pretty whichever it is.
