Cotinus is commonly called Smoke Bush, it’s a garden shrub and I was lucky to get hold of a big one that was damaged by storms earlier this year. Also called Venetian Sumac it is very yellow when fresh cut and was once used as a yellow dye. It dries though to a lovely golden honey colour with striking darker growth rings. I’m not likely to get any more in the near future and these are the last I’ll have for sale until who knows when. Grab ’em while you can.
