|In order for Cotinus
'Grace' to produce the best light effects it must be planted in the correct
way - it performs best when seen in a combination of reflected and transmitted
light. For this reason we have tried a much as we can to position it so
that we are able to view it against the light; looking at the shrub south-west
to west is ideal for catching reflections and transmissions of sunlight.
For some reason, the overall effect is better towards evening rather than
in the early morning (when we would look south-east to east).
