Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks’ time. For best flavor, harvest the pods when they reach 1/2″ in diameter regardless of their length, or leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.

Gardeners living in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 8 are fortunate to be in prime smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria) growing territory. This large deciduous shrub produces blue-green or purple leaves in the summer that turn striking shades of red and yellow in the fall. The plant is further adorned by large clusters of summer flowers that fade into purple strands of growth that resemble wisps of smoke. The attractive smoke bush is easy to grow and requires little care, being tolerant of dry conditions and preferring rocky soils where other plants are hesitant to grow. You can propagate the plant with cuttings or from seeds. Growing smoke bush from seed is not difficult but it does take some time; you must mimic the conditions the seed would find in nature to encourage germination.

How to Grow Smoke Bush Cotinus From Seeds

Gardeners living in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 8 are fortunate to be in prime smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria) growing territory. This large deciduous shrub produces blue-green or purple leaves in the summer that turn striking shades of red and yellow in the fall. The plant is further adorned by large clusters of summer flowers that fade into purple strands of growth that resemble wisps of smoke. The attractive smoke bush is easy to grow and requires little care, being tolerant of dry conditions and preferring rocky soils where other plants are hesitant to grow. You can propagate the plant with cuttings or from seeds. Growing smoke bush from seed is not difficult but it does take some time; you must mimic the conditions the seed would find in nature to encourage germination.

Pour boiling water over the smoke bush seeds and allow them to soak for 12 hours to scarify them. If you have only a few seeds, you can scuff the surface with sandpaper or a metal file instead.

Fill a tray with a potting soil made for seed starting and place the scarified seeds into the soil. Store the tray in an area with a constant temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit for 90 days. Keep the soil in the tray moist during this time. Do not allow the soil to dry out or become waterlogged.

Move the tray into a refrigerator, garage, basement or other cool area with a constant temperature of 40 degrees F. Store the seeds in this cool environment for 90 to 150 days. Keep the seeds moist during this cool storage period just as you did during the warm storage.

Plant the seeds in late spring or early summer after any danger of frost has passed. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch deep in well-drained soil in a spot where they will receive full sun.

Water the seeds and subsequent seedlings as often as needed to maintain moist soil until the plants are established. After they are established, decrease the amount of water to prevent root rot.
