Staghorn Sumac Tree
Want something completely different, super-exotic looking, and incredibly tough and hardy, that nobody else has in their landscape? Think sumac!—Small trees, up to 15 feet tall, with fern-like compound leaves which make great loose-textured landscape accents, highly favored as small courtyard trees in English and European gardens and as erosion control in hard-to-mow dry hillsides. Unlike its close relatives, poison ivy, oak and sumac, the landscape sumacs do not cause itchy rashes. Easy to grow. WILL SPREAD! Stunning fall color.
Exposure: Full sun to part shade
Height: Up to 10 - 15 feet
