The smoke bush was part of a garden tapestry that I imagined when I first started putting the garden together. I dreamt of having a view to the back garden from inside the house. It didn't start out that way. In fact, getting to the back garden was a dismal trek down a dark hallway through a dingy utility area that had once been the service porch. Now there is the view I envisioned. The tapestry is a combination (by the way, it is a Fall tapestry) of the smoke bush behind the ginko tree, behind the copper beech. When weather conditions are right, the ginko becomes the brightest acid yellow before it drops its leaves. The smoke bush is doing its part, now for the weather to kick in for the ginko.
