Rhus typhina 'Tiger Eyes'
Tiger Eyes (Bailtiger PPAF) Staghorn Sumac
Deciduous shrub to small tree that will have an upright, rounded habit at maturity. Lacy foliage is the real stunner on this one! New leaves emerge chartreuse, turning to yellow, then to brilliant orange in the fall. Adding to its unique appearance are reddish stems and then greenish yellow flowers in the summer. Red bunches of fruits follow the flowers and persist into the winter until the birds eat them. This is a dwarf form of the regular sumac and will not be as invasive, but may send up some shoots away from the main plant. Does very well in clay soil and will be drought tolerant once established. Great for an impact plant in a small garden area!
