Rhus

The stag’s-horn sumach, Rhus typhina, is commonly seen in gardens as a small shrubby tree with a familiar wide-spreading, antler-like branch system. A native of eastern U.S.A., this small suckering tree is most spectacular in autumn when its large pinnate leaves turn vivid shades of red, orange and yellow. Conical hairy clusters of crimson fruits are attractive particularly after the fall of leaf. There is also an equally worthy variety laciniata with more deeply divided leaves.
