Huge Cotinus leaves


Huge Cotinus leaves

Is this the weather ? Usually I would prune hard to get big leaves. But I did not prune at all last year and these leaves are MASSIVE.

most definately. Perhaps some garden twine to hold it up. Will be a very fetching colour. Could catch on commercially.................possibilities are endless :o)

Mine are like that this year. I have had to cut both of them back already to clear the path.
Surely you would need Gunnera leaves to get full cover Pimp?!

My C. 'Grace' has huge leaves too, but I think it is the variety. My C.Golden Spirit has small ones.

I agree with Karen - Grace is the only on of mine with big leaves - or should that be 'had' big leaves :(

My poor, tiny little Cotinus is struggling to keep leaves on that are maybe a twentieth of the size of this one. He's got a way to go before he produces anything this size, but we're working on it.
