Quick Overview:

GOLDEN SPIRIT (‘Ancot’) is a smoketree cultivar that is grown for its unusual golden foliage. This is a deciduous, upright, loose-spreading, multi-stemmed shrub that typically grows 8-15’ tall and as wide, however it can be easily kept more compact through annual pruning. Yellow leaves (to 3” long) suffused with green retain good color throughout summer, but turn amber, burgundy, scarlet and green in fall.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils except wet, poorly-drained ones. Prefers somewhat infertile loams, but performs well in poor, rocky soils. Sharp drainage is essential. Plants have shallow fibrous root systems. If bloom is desired, prune very lightly in early spring only as needed. If bloom is not a concern, stems may be cut back hard in early spring to a framework to induce growth of vigorous new shoots with larger than normal leaves.
