jean A lot of people prune the Smoke tree regularly to get a smaller bushier plant with larger leaves. Left to their own devices they will become quite a large shrub, or even a small tree, with a height and spread of up to 5 metres.you can prune them in spring and autumn but either way they won't produce that haze of smoky flowers for over a year. It's the little flower stems that create the smoky appearance.
