The North American stag's horn sumach, grown in gardens for over 350 years, is spectacular in autumn when its foliage turns fiery orange, gold, scarlet or purple The effect is greater when set against the dense cones of red fruit borne by female plants. It is prone to producing suckers but these can be mown off in lawns, or plants may be grown in large tubs. When dug up rooted suckers are an easy way to propagate new plants.

I have had this tree growing in my garden for 35 years,not the same one which I took a cutting from my mothers garden but its off spring.It has suckers that grow from the base or even seedlings(they have spread to my next door neighbour).They can get a bit gangly and need a bit of a prune to straighten it up as really it likes slouch,thats ok if you have thepace.Its marvel in autumn with its changing colours and big flower heads or they are more like seed heads,easy tree and beautiful
