I bought one of these Tigereye Bailtiger/Staghorn Sumacs at
a local store about 4 yaers ago.Growing up in Michigan and in a rual area I saw plenty of Sumac and always wondered why no one planted it for its beauty.As a kid I even tried to transplant some wild common Sumacs but never with any luck.So when I saw these at the store I had to get one,and I couldn't be happier.
It has grown from aprox. 2 feet tall to almost 4 feet with an equal spread. It's fern-like leaves are lush green through spring and summer,turning to an array of gold, orange and bright chrimson in the fall."Hence Tigereye" It's completely hardy but not invasive as I feared. It's also easy to clean up after as the fronds or leaves can just be plucked from it as they wither, or picked up as they fall!.....Thanks
