An upright, deciduous shrub or small tree with finely-cut dark green leaflets turning spectacular shades of orange-red in autumn. Stag's horn sumach is an excellent specimen plant for a small sunny garden. Since it spreads by suckering avoid planting too close to a lawn or surround the roots with a non-perishable barrier that will restrict the plant's spread.Garden care: Wearing stout gardening gloves remove any suckering shoots that arise around the base of the plant.
