American Smoke Tree

Our native smoketree is an uncommon small to medium size deciduous tree.  Its common name is from the appearance of smoke when in fruit. It has broad oval leaves which are larger than the more commonly grown European Smoketree (C. coggygria).  It has very good orange, yellow, and red-purple fall color and interesting scaly bark. It occurs in widely scattered localities usually on limestone from eastern TN to central TX.  It needs well-drained soil and may benefit from lime.  Often not so tall in cultivation as in the wild.
