Staghorn Sumac is a fast growing ever changing shrub or tree

The scientific name Rhus typhina knows the Staghorn Sumac tree. This tree grows well in hardy zones 3-9. It is a deciduous tree and grows at a rapid pace. The tree requires sun to partial shade and can tolerate many different soil types. It does not grow well in wet soil, however. The leaves on the tree change color with the different seasons. They can be green, red, yellow, and scarlet in the fall.

The Staghorn sumac will produce red colored fruit in the summer.

The Staghorn Sumac is a Native to the eastern portion of North America. However, it can be grown in other temperate climates. They love various soil conditions as long as there are moisture and good drainage. These have at times been classified as large shrubs or small trees. These will produce a bloom that is a deep orange in summer and fall. It will attract a variety of wildlife to the area.

 For those creating a garden of any kind, the Staghorn Sumac is one of the most enjoyable and often changing plants found anywhere in the world.

The name of the plant comes from the small hairs that grow on the new leaves and resemble the antlers of the stag in the Spring. Whether planted as part of an architectural garden or as a yard to attract wildlife the Staghorn Sumac is a popular option.

 The long leaves of the tree resemble a fern and begin the year as a deep green color, before changing in the Fall to deep purple, yellow and orange colors. Many leaves of the Staghorn Sumac will take on some colors in the Fall; often half the leaf will remain green, and the other portion of the leaf will change to different colors.

 The conical shaped flowers and fruits of the Staghorn Sumac are some of the most interesting found in any garden. Covered in beautiful red hairs, the plant attracts a large number of birds and flying insects throughout the Summer and Fall.
