Laceleaf Staghorn Sumac (Rhus Typhina) 


Zone 4-8: Plant full sun or partial sun. Great specimen tree. A large, loose, open-spreading shrub with a flattish crown and branches resembling the velvety antlers of a deer, hence the name Staghorn.

 

One of the most interesting characteristics of your Staghorn is its unusual flowers. Green-hued, yellow flowers form in spring. Eight-inch tall, pyramid-shaped clusters of drupes appear on the female plants. The berry-like drupes ripen red in late summer/early fall, and mature to a brown color that tends to persist throughout the winter months.
