Smoketree grows best in a sunny location and a well-drained loam. It will grow asymmetrically and lean toward the light in a partially sunny area, so it is best to locate it in full day sun where the crown will develop symmetrically. Produces cloud of airy smoky pink flowers on current season growth.

Established plants are drought tolerant.
