Cotinus obovatus: these are the fruit of our collections in Tennessee

Actually, I guess they were grown from the fruits we collected, Joan, Amy, and I. I was walking past one of the Fern Valley cold frames this afternoon and noticed them. While most mature Cotinus have shed their leaves already, these were looking good. I truly like this plant and feel like it does have a future in gardens.

The seed germinated, after an acid pre-treatment, about a year ago and by this time next year these plants will be ready to be planted out.
