Rhus typhina 'Laciniata'

For fall color it doesn't get much better than this. This laciniated sumac is pretty all season, but once the leaves start to change colors this one rivals any maple out there. It will grow in sun or light shade and isn't all that picky about it's location. If left on its own, it will slowly form a small colony, but babies are just broken off if you don't want more plants - there are not more than one or two a year on our plants. It will be more upright in shade, bushier in sun as most plants are. Height is probably about 6 feet with width almost as much. Not a small plant, but a nice addition to the garden.
