Sun Valley grows Cotinus (Pronounced Co-Tine-Us) in Willow Creek, CA. Commonly called "Smoke Bush" this variety is bred specifically to grow straight and tall for floral applications. This is what the field looked like yesterday.
The last time I was in Willow Creek it was winter. It was cold and the majority of the farm was pruned, flat, and waiting...But now, smack dab in the middle of summer, our Willow Creek Farm is crawling with activity, growth, and color!
