A beautiful native small tree or large shrub, valued for its fascinating range of fall foliage colors, with yellow, gold orange and red all on the same plant, extremely showy; rounded habit of growth, good size for the home landscape

American Smoketree features airy panicles of yellow flowers at the ends of the branches from early to late summer. It has bluish-green foliage throughout the season. The round leaves turn an outstanding orange in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The warty gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

American Smoketree is a multi-stemmed deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

American Smoketree is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Hedges/Screening

This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for alkaline soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This species is native to parts of North America.
