I was in Seattle, and saw an interesting ornamental plant in someone's yard.

Any ideas what it is?

Sorry it isn't actually macro - I must have been 20 feet away...

Thanks for any information!

That's a lovely specimen of Cotinus coggygria also known as Smoke tree or smoke bush. It's one of my all time favorite ornamentals, especially the dark red/purple cultivars.

It was off topic, but I knew someone would know - you fine folk are immensely knowledgeable! Very Happy

Thanks, David!

It looks like a plant that will leave a big fluffy mess in the yard. Also the neighbors yard.

One man's mess is another man's organic mulch.
