If it gets too tall or open it can be cut back to ground-level when necessary to induce compact new growth. A hardy and trouble-free shrub with multiple uses in the garden.

Pink Smoketree
Reviewed By: Anja (Pleasanton, California)
I bought a Pink Smoketree about five years ago and it grew fast. Unfortunately, have not seen it bloom. It looks like it's diseased with wrinkled leaves. Very leggy branches. Not real happy with it.

impressed
Reviewed By: Ray (Tucumcari, NM)
Bought one tree 2 years ago and it has grown about 3 feet first year, just leaves. Bought 2 more this year and in 2 months already have a lot of leaves, hope the first one flowers this year, shows signs of it now. We have very bad soil and a lot of rocks, but I water on drip system all year long.

Gurney's you're awesome
Reviewed By: Debbie (Edmond, OK)
My twigs came from Gurney's yesterday and I planted them today. Gurney's did a beautiful job shipping them. The roots were wrapped and insulated to keep them moist. I can't wait to see if they make it. The instruction booklet that came with them was most helpful. Thanks Gurney's. I'll let you know how they make it here in OK

Great Tree
Reviewed By: Niki (Bussey, Iowa)
I bought one of these trees either 3 or 4 springs ago. It came and was alive but did pretty much look like a dead stick. I planted it and was somewhat skeptical. However after 3-4 years it has grown to be a beautiful tree. It is about 6 foot tall and has thick beautiful foilage. Although, I have yet to see it flower out and have it's pink feathery appearance. I'm hoping next year it will feather out. I have also heard everyone say that this tree perfers dry/sandy/rocky soil. However, I live in Iowa and have black soil that has absolutely no rocks in it and it also tends to be quite wet and it has done very well.

The first year I ordered this tree, I did see the flumes and they were so pretty. Hope this year there are more flumes than last year.

1 of 3 made it
Reviewed By: Lori (Cumberland, MD.)
I ordered (3) of these, like others they were little Sticks with hair, I was unsure what I would get... Of the # I ordered Only One make the trip... Now it is beautiful, and this will be its second year in the ground, I have yet to see the Flower Pink yet, but the leaves are beauiful, and the one that did make it seems to really have taking off...It has great hieght, and I can't wait to see the Pink color come our... Don't know how long it usually takes but hoping this year to be my year... The only reason I rated this a (3) is because of the other (2) that didn't make it :(

a lot for a little
Reviewed By: Nancy C (Orondo, WA)
We live at the western base of the Columbia Plateau in a hot, summer-baked rock pile! I look for plants that are drought tolerant but still have something to offer. What isn't mentioned about the smoke tree in the description is its phenomenal fall leaves--orange, red, burgundy---that stay on long, long after the sumac and burning bushes. We have a harsh, sandy environment here, but these sweet little trees don't take much compared to what they give. After a couple of springs, it's now over 5 feet (pretty good for growing in pure subsoil!). Spring's barely here and I can hardly wait for fall just to see that beautiful color.

Fast Growing Tree
Reviewed By: Niki G (Bussey, IA)
"Like another reviewer said I was somewhat skeptical when I first recieved this last spring. It was just a single branch around 12"" long. I planted it when it was still cool, end of March here, and was afraid it might be a shock to it's system. This tree did really well and branched up and out at least 6 12"" long stems. It also had very beautiful foilage. Dark leaves. It did lose it's leaves this winter, but is starting to bud out again this spring. It never produced plumes last year, but a fruit tree doesn't produce fruit the first year and most flowering perennials don't bloom fully the first year either. So hopefully in the next year or two it will start producing the pink plumes. I only rated this a four due to the small size of the tree when you first recieve it. But I am very satisfied with it."

When I first got these, I was skeptical...just looked like sticks but I planted them. I was amazed at how the sticks started sprouting growth and leaves...color change of leaves was great...later the next Spring, I had beautiful pink flumes all through August. Great!

dissapointed
Reviewed By: Anita Exum (Plant City, Florida)
Well fall is here in Florida but instead of the leaves turning colors they didn't. Once the leaves started turning yellow they turned brown and have begun to fall off. This was a tree full of nice leaves too. So this was a big dissapointment for me.

This tree leafed out quick. Hope to see a display of flowers in the months to come. Will rate higher at a later date, if it produces the flumes of flowers as expected.
