Cotinus obovatus in autumn

This American smokebush, Cotinus obovatus 'Flame' has grown to the size of a small tree by the side of the Lake. The simple ovate leaves have turned such vivid coppers, oranges and reds that the tree seems painted on to the dark evergreens in a pointillist style
Looking over from the Southern European beds of the Rock Garden across the Lake, fringed above and below by the towering black pines and their reflections in the Lake, this American smokebush appears to glow like a pearl in a giant clam!
