How To Care

Smoke trees will have the best leaf color with full sun, but it can grow well with some shade. It adapts well to a variety of well-draining soils, but prefers acidic soil. Water deeply twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. Add 2 inches of mulch to help your new plants stay moist and the roots protected. Once established Smoke trees are drought tolerant. However, this shrub will perform best when watered once weekly during dry periods. Fertilize when planting and in early spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer to give your shrub a boost. Prune after flowering for best results.

The Smokebush is deer resistant and rarely has problems with pests or disease.
